I was so happy to find this drink on one of my fellow runner’s blog.

White Bean Soup

This is my favourite soup currently. I picked up the recipe from a leaflet that came with junk mail a few months ago. I love tasty, nutritious vegetarian dishes and this is one. Beans are high in fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals. Perhaps not so gentle for the stomach .. but I think it is worth it!

White bean soup

1 onion
1 garlic clove
2 tbls tomato puree
2 tbls oil
1 L water
2 vegetable stock cubes
2 cans of large white beans
2 tomatoes
(1 carrot finely grated)
1 bunch of fresh basil

Fry onion, garlic, grated carrot and tomato puree gently in oil. Add water and stock cubes, bring to boil and let simmer for 10 minutes. Add tomatoes, beans and basil. Allow to heat up and the soup is ready to be served.

I served the soup here with white bread and avocado.
