  • 1 cup - dry white beans (soaked for a couple of hours and cooked)
  • 1 tbsp - canola or other vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup - white wine
  • 12 cloves garlic, ground

How to Make Garlicky White Bean Soup

  • Heat oil in a saucepan. Add the onions and saute for a couple of minutes. Then, add the garlic, ginger and wine.
  • Let it cook, stirring a few times, until the liquid evaporates and the onion starts to change colour.
  • Add the pepper, salt and beans with either 1 cup of the water they were cooked in, or 1 cup of plain water or vegetable stock.
  • Mash the beans lightly with the back of a ladle to crush some of the beans, but leave some whole. This will help thicken the soup.
  • If the soup is too thick, add more water or stock.
  • Let the soup simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • Add the coconut milk and let the soup just warm through before turning off the heat.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve piping hot.
