About this article
To make bean soup, start by heating a little olive oil in a large saucepan and add the sliced onion, garlic, celery, red pepper and any other vegetables you like. Cook the vegetables for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the onion is translucent. When the vegetables stop cooking, add salt, pepper and any other spices you like. Then pour 2 cans of beans and 2 cups of stock into the saucepan. If you want a meatier soup, mix in some diced ham or bacon. Take the soup and simmer and cook it for 40 minutes to make it thicker.
