A taste of the Mediterranean comes home with this cannellini bean soup recipe and our Sutter Home Cabernet Sauvignon.  ​

Cannellini Bean Soup Ingredients: ​

  • 2 cups dry cannellini beans
  • 1/2 cup kidney beans
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling            
  • 2 onions, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 small (6-inch long) carrots, peeled, halved lengthwise, and sliced (about 1 1/4 cups)
  • 4 celery stalks (the tender inner stalks with leaves), peeled and chopped (about 1 1/4 cups)
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes, fresh or canned
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon coarse salt          
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Cannellini Bean Soup Directions:​

  1. Rinse the beans well, combine and place in a large pot. Cover the beans with 4 quarts of water. Bring to a boil, cover, and turn off the heat. Soak for 1 hour.
  2. Place the olive oil, onions, and garlic in a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. When the garlic begins to sizzle, after about 30 seconds, add the carrots and celery and continue to cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, basil, and parsley, and cook, stirring occasionally, for an additional 3 minutes.
  3. Add 6 cups of the soaked beans, cover with 10 cups of cold water, and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer, partially covered, until the beans are tender and creamy, at least 1 ½ hours but up to 2 1/2 hours. Add water if necessary, to achieve desired consistency; the soup should be thick. Add the salt halfway through the cooking. Serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, freshly black ground black pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil.
