This chunky and hearty white bean soup is rich, super flavorful and filling. A great dinner option for a cold night, this soup is rich in complex carbs, full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and is also high in protein thanks to nutritional powerhouses known as navy beans. The soup is vegetarian, can easily be made ahead or frozen and is great for the whole family!

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped

how many dried navy beans would I need to replace the canned ones

    One cup of dried beans will yield about 3 cups of cooked beans.

Do you think you could replace the small pasta shells with orzo?

    We haven't tried that, but it seems like it would work! Let us know if you try it!
