Creamy White Bean Soup

Meal.Mates's picture
Creamy White Bean Soup is another trendy recipe which I once learned from a TV cooking show. Lots of cream, some herbs of your choice and ofcourse loads of fresh white beans makes a perfect Creamy White Bean Soup. Whenever my kitchen is stuffed with extra white beans, I navigate my thoughts and prepare this delicious dish. I am no longer scared for the sudden parties at home. I make sure my guests enjoy the supper as much I do.
