White Bean Tomato Basil Soup, Healthy, Hearty and Satisfying

If you enjoy tomato basil soup but think it's not really a "meal", you haven't tried this delicious White Bean Tomato Basil Soup! It's fortified with white beans (for extra protein and fiber), lots of fresh veggies and a ton of fabulous flavor!

White beans are a wonderful source of protein and are loaded with other healthy nutrients. I've also included carrots in this White Bean Tomato Basil Soup to add even more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Pureed soups are a great way to sneak extra veggies into everyday meals without anyone objecting (or knowing)! This White Bean Tomato Basil Soup comes together quickly with just one pot on the stovetop. It starts with a pat of butter and a splash of olive oil in a Dutch oven or large soup pot. Next comes onion, garlic, pesto and Italian seasoning, all sautéd together until nice and fragrant.

Then add all the remaining ingredients (except the fresh basil), bring it all to a boil then cover, lower the heat and simmer for 25 minutes until the carrots are nice and tender. Add the basil and give the soup a quick puree with an immersion or regular blender till it's nice and smooth. I like to add a splash of half and half before serving to mellow out all the flavors, but that's optional, it's also delicious dairy-free.
