  • 1x 400g tin cannellini beans
  • 1x 400g tin white butter beans
  • 2 onions, roughly chopped
  • 2 shallots, roughly chopped
  • 1 leek, washed and roughly chopped
  • 6 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 litre of vegetable or chicken stock (or vegetable bouillon)
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • Handful of tarragon, chopped
  • Salt and pepper

Heat the coconut oil in a pan. Once melted, add the onion, shallots, leek and garlic and soften for approximately 10 minutes (until cooked but not brown).

Add the beans, stock, bay leaf and seasoning and simmer for 20-25 minutes.

Cool the soup slightly and remember to remove the bay leaf before blending in a liquidiser until smooth. This soup is thick so you may want to dilute it with a little water or stock.

To serve, pour the soup back into a pan and bring up to temperature, checking the seasoning and adding a little lemon juice to taste. Pour into soup bowls, top with a spoonful of Greek yoghurt, a drizzle of olive oil and chopped tarragon.

* Please take special care when liquidising the soup if it is still hot!
