Leftover Bean Soup Aka White Bean Puree Soup
As I mentioned, I participated in the First Annual Souperama! this weekend where I entered my roasted eggplant and white bean soup. It didn't win, but I had an incredible experience meeting 15 other soupy lovers-professional chefs, caterers and people who simply just love soup (I'll be posting more about that exciting event tomorrow and Wednesday). After the soup was done, I miscalculated the amount of beans I needed where I ended up with over three cups of cannelloni white beans. Now, I could have either made some sort of white bean puree, placed them in my cupboard and saved them for another use, but true to soupy form I decided to keep cooking and use the beans for a soup. Similar to the beans in the cupboard soup concept of using what I had, I added in some carrots, edamame, along with the leftover broth and some seasonings-creating a simple soup whose ingredients can be altered based on what you have and your taste preferences. Enjoy and be sure to check out tomorrow's posts of the Souperama!
