In this video, Chef John will show you how to make a hearty bean soup from scratch. He starts with an aromatic base using mirepoix, garlic, fresh herbs, and spices. This simmers together with cannellini beans and rich chicken broth. Tart creme fraiche and a squeeze of lemon juice is whisked into the soup once pureed. A sprinkling of homemade crisp croutons and a sprinkling of parsley round out this perfect comforting soup. Get the recipe for Chef John's Tuscan Bean Soup.
