Allergy-Friendly White Bean Soup

This recipe for Allergy-Friendly Italian White Bean Soup is simple, filling, and is Top 8 Free! I have to say that I am not the biggest fan of soups – I always envied people that were fortunate to have those thick, creamy soups in bread bowls. The soup that I am used to eating (not that often) tends to be watery, and lack flavor.

This recipe is a robust, hardy soup that keeps me full for much longer than I am used to! It also is very healthy, so I can feel good that I am not consuming thousands of calories per bite.

My favorite part of the recipe is substituting the water for vegetable broth in cooking the brown rice – this adds so much flavor! My husband even commented that we should cook brown rice like that from now on.

I hope you enjoy cooking this simple recipe, and savoring the delicious Italian flavors!
