It seems that every time I make a new soup, I immediately declare “this is my new favorite soup!”.
Well…this white bean and rosemary soup IS my new favorite!
You probably don’t trust that it really is this good because I make this “best” claim on every soup I create. I guess there’s just something about a great stew or bisque though that makes me happy and satisfied and every single one of them are generally amazing.
This one in particular is great, because the rosemary is so absolutely fragrant and the creamy white beans make it extra savory. I used some leftover french bread to make croutons and they upped the deliciousness factor as well. Bon apetit!
