White Bean and Rosemary Soup with Jumbo Croutons

Last night was another new dish from Eat, Drink and Be Vegan. We had the White Bean Soup with Rosemary and Jumbo Croutons. Wow!! This soup is good. Want proof........Mairin ate 2, yes you read that right, 2 bowls. Of course, she's a crouton addict, so the croutons being in the soup helped.

This soup has a very mellow flavor, with each of the ingredients imparting their own subtle flavor. It's a thick and creamy puree, Rob described it as having the texture of gravy. He actually thought it was a bit like biscuits and gravy in a bowl. I don't know, I didn't quite get that feeling, but, to each his own I guess.

This is a very quick dish to prepare as well. I didn't get home until after 7, and we were eating by 8. That included all of the prep of the veggies and everything. We'll definitely be adding this one to our soup rounds.
