Simple White Bean and Pesto Soup
10 mins (prep 5, cooking 5)
8 ingredients
3-4 servings
With a loaf of crusty bread on hand, this recipe will have dinner on the table in five minutes. When you have so few ingredients, the quality must be impeccable. If you have homemade chicken stock, now is the time to use it. You could use a heaping tablespoon of pre-made pesto, but the pine nuts and Parmesan can be distracting from the subtle flavors of the beans. This simplified pesto couldn't be easier.
