Tomato White Bean Soup Recipe – Meatless Monday
This Tomato White Bean Soup recipe with Kale Pesto makes the perfect hearty, filling and delicious dinner.
One of my favorite dinners lately has been a nice, warm bowl of hearty soup with a green salad on the side. It’s so simple but also filling and nourishing. There is just something about soup in the fall that makes me feel cozy.
My family and I love creamy tomato soup. The only downside is that it often doesn’t really leave you full and I find myself hungry again an hour after dinner. Plus a lot of really good tomato soup is “bisque” and made with heavy cream. I’ve been searching for a good tomato-based soup recipe for awhile. I’ve tried many that are pretty good but lack a hearty flavor.
All the great taste of creamy tomato soup, but the addition of white beans gives it a hearty consistency. Don’t even get me started on the Kale Pesto that tops this soup. It’s amazing! After making the kale pesto for this Tomato White Bean Soup recipe, I made another batch to use on scrambled eggs, toast, and added to pasta. It’s so delicious!
This soup make makes the perfect Meatless Monday meal. I served mine with a nice green salad and was so full after that I had to save some soup for the next day. It reheats really nicely, so it’s great for leftovers or meal prepping. Plus my kids LOVED this soup. That is always a winning recipe in my book.
