Rosemary Borlotti Soup



Made this incredible soup today, I seriously recommend you try it. Inspired by the great @DeliaonlineBorlotti and Pasta Soup, this one is a bit lighter and quicker.⠀

I would always recommend using herbs and spices in your cooking for their powerful medicinal qualities, and this soup is delicious with the rosemary, slightly unusual and warming.⠀

✨Rosemary is an amazing stimulant, great for cognition and for someone with a low appetite, such as after an illness.⠀

✨It strengthens memory, helps to boost the immune system and is often used for digestive issues like heartburn and gas⠀

✨Like garlic it is a potent antioxidant and highly anti-inflammatory⠀

Recipe:⠀

1 dessertspoon of ghee, butter or olive oil⠀

1 onion finely chopped (white or red doesn’t matter)⠀

2 large cloves of garlic crushed⠀

1 red pepper⠀

2 tins of beans - I like borlotti or cannellini or a mix of both for this. Could also use butter beans, or another soft white bean.⠀

2 sprigs rosemary, leaves removed and finely chopped⠀

2 tbsps tomato puree⠀

Half a punnet of tomatoes, or 1 large tomato or a handful of cherry tomatoes chopped ⠀

Stock, vegetable or chicken as you prefer⠀

*Melt the ghee, add the chopped onion, garlic and pepper, stir and allow to cook down for a few mins. ⠀

*Add the chopped rosemary and the tomato puree and cook for a minute. ⠀

*Throw in the tins of beans.

*Finally add the fresh tomatoes and stock. ⠀

*Bring to the boil and then lower to a simmer for 20 mins. ⠀

*Blend. Taste. Add salt and pepper as you like it.⠀

Serving options:⠀

Sprinkle with toasted seeds, chopped avocado, some roasted red pepper, fresh dill, a drizzle of chilli oil ⠀
