- 2 cans diced plain tomatoes (no herbs)
- 1 – 2 cups white kidney beans rinsed ( 1 can = 2 cups)
- 2 cups for a thick traditional puree’ style soup
- 1 cup for a thinner/lighter pureed soup
- 2 cups vegetable broth (low sodium)
- ¾ cup chopped sweet onion
- ½ cup water
- ½ cup light olive oil (light in flavour)
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1.5 tbsp Cluck & Squeal All Purpose Seasoning & BBQ Rub
- 1.5 tbsp lemon juice
- ½ tsp salt
- Optional – a piece of Parmigiana Cheese Rind
Melt the butter in a medium size sauce pot on medium low heat and add the chopped sweet onions and coat well in butter and begin to soften for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the water and increase the heat to medium high and cook until translucent and soft.
Add the diced tomatoes, white kidney beans and the vegetable broth, combine well and leave the heat on medium high to achieve a simmering boil for 10 minutes.
Transfer the hot mixture to a blender and blend small batches slowly. Start slowly and pulse the blender while holding the blender lid nice and tight with your hand. Puree on high until smooth and transfer into a large bowl or to another pot similar or larger in size. Continue this process until complete and return the pureed soup to the stove on medium heat to bring it back to a low simmer, reduce the heat if necessary.
Add the Cluck & Squeal All Purpose Seasoning & BBQ Rub, salt and the light olive oil and whisk and combine well. At this time add the parmigiana cheese rind if you would like to richen the soup with some Unami flavor this cheese is known for. When the soup begins to lightly boil reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes. Turn the heat off and stir in the lemon juice.
This soup compliments a wonderful grilled cheese sandwich or a simple sourdough bread for dipping.
