Used Canned Beans or Make Your Own From Scratch

This white bean pasta soup can be made with either canned or dried beans. I prefer making my beans from scratch in my Instant Pot.  You can follow my simple no soak navy beans recipe here, and add the beans to my soup when they are done.

I make dried beans in my Instant Pot every week, it’s a great way to save on cost. If you’re a bean fan, then I’d recommend an Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker as a way to take your recipes to the next level!

Vegetarian cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right.

By building meals around vegetarian pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make healthier meals for you and your family. I made a list of my 125 favorite vegan pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my vegetarian recipes here that are on The Herbeevore.

I stock up on organic produce with Misfits Market  – they have a fantastic selection of in-season fruits & veggies, healthy pantry items, and great food finds for a fraction of grocery store prices. You can get $10 off your first $30 box here!

  • White Beans: you can use canned navy or cannellini beans, just make sure they are cooked before you add them to the soup.  If you use canned beans, make sure to get a low or no sodium variety, so the soup isn’t too salty.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: I like to use this fruity olive oil which has a fantastic flavor and deep color- it’s inexpensive & I like to keep a few liters stocked up in my pantry.  For the quality of oil you get, it’s an excellent value.
  • Garlic
  • Celery

Frozen Vegetable Soup Recipes For the Win!

You can use frozen veggies for this recipe instead of  fresh produce – like frozen zucchini or spinach. Frozen produce is a great option for finding fresh and flavorful vegetables in the off season. By using freezer ingredients, I can stock up when they are on sale, and use them in all kinds of great dishes. It saves me a trip to the store, and I can add amazing veggies right into the recipe.

Frozen vegetables are often picked at peak ripeness.  Check out all my recipes that use Freezer Ingredients on The Herbeevore – great for those nights when you want dinner ready fast! And check out my Top 125 Plant-Based Pantry Staples for long-lasting staples that I always keep on hand.

      Hi Carol,
      You can omit the zucchini entirely if you like. To substitute, You can add carrots or other summer squash (like a yellow variety) or butternut squash in it’s place. Let me know how it turns out!
