Temperatures Are Cooling Off - Great Soup Recipe For Fall Days

Pesto Bean Soup

 

It's another mixed weather week here in the Dallas Area Metroplex,
warm one day, cooler and rainy the next, then moving back to hot!  

It seems like the perfect time to prepare a homemade soup or stew.  

Here is the easy recipe for Pesto Bean Soup, courtesy of the Food Network.

Directions

Saute 5 sliced garlic cloves and a pinch of red pepper flakes in a skillet with olive oil. Add 2 cans drained cannellini beans and 1 cup water; simmer until thick, 8 minutes. Stir in 3 tablespoons pesto and 2 tablespoons grated parmesan.

 

Add 3 cups chicken broth and 1 cup chopped celery; cook 15 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup each chopped olives and roasted peppers.

Lisa Von Domek - It is soup time! Aren't you glad to see and taste so many new recipes in restaurants and homes! 

When I was a kid, my mother offered 3 choices: Beef, Chicken, or Vegetable.

The recipe you provided sounds delicious!!!

I will pass this on to my Bride Lisa Von Domek as she loves to make soup (more than I like to eat it ).

Sounds like a delicious soup to enjoy on a cold day or any day for that matter, seems easy to make too!

I think this one gets a bookmark...we make bunches of soup...!

And chili's. Either or both are great when. It is cold

I love a hearty soup on a cold day, myself, Lisa. Beans have never been quite "my thing," however, unless it's in a chili.

Morning Lisa.

One of my aunts used to make split pea soup. It was soooo thick and packed with big chunks of smoked ham.  Man, that was good with some toasted bread

I'm not sure if fall weather will ever come our way, but the soup looks divine and I will definitely try it. Soup is always a great meal choice. I'll bookmark.

Hello Lisa,  I am making soup tomorow night with the temp only 41 tomorrow doing the day and 32 at night.  Maybe this one, or  cauliflower coup.

Thank you very much for this recipe. We expect cooler weather in about a week.

Have an outstanding week.

I agree Barbara Todaro Bok Choy is a wonderful addition to homemade soup!

Kasey & John Boles I am ready for some fall temperatures here in Dallas...hoping this soup recipe will usher in a cold front!

I hope you enjoy this one Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD it is a wonderful recipe!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago

Wonderful Lottie Kendall let me know what you think of it when you try it!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago

There are so many soup varieties Patricia Feager how will we ever try them all!  LOL

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago

Think of this soup as more of a stew Bob "RealMan" Timm ...LOL

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago

Brian England it is a delicious soup and one that even non-cooks can turn out perfectly!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago

Wonderful Sally K. & David L. Hanson I know you will enjoy making it in that beautiful kitchen of yours!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago

I agree William Feela I do love a good bowl of chili...as long as it is spicy!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago

I do love chili Nina Hollander but I enjoy bean soups too...I particularly love split pea soup!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago

James Dray as I just mentioned to Nina, split pea soup is my favorite and how you described it is just how I make it - mine's really a stew more than a soup!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago

I am impatiently waiting for the cooler weather here too Pat Starnes-Front Gate Realty we had a couple of days the temperatures dipped...then right back to heat!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago

Send some of that cooler weather to Dallas Will Hamm !  And if you prepare this soup, please let me know what you think of it!

Roy Kelley I hope that you and Chef Dolores enjoy this recipe.  Have a wonderful week!

Ummm...sounds and looks mighty tasty. I love fall days.

Hi Lisa... when you and my husband would get along well... he loves split pea soup (of course, he's Dutch)... as for me, I can't even stand the smell of it!

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Realty) almost 2 years ago

Looks tasty,  warm and easy to make! All good things on a cold winter night!
