Italian Beans and Greens Soup

I made this soup and it turned out really good. I adapted it from another recipe and it's quick and easy. In case you want to try it, here's the recipe. I hope you like it!

Italian Beans and Greens Soup

2-3 TB Olive Oil
5-6 cloves fresh garlic, sliced
1 medium onion
Escarole, Swiss chard, Kale or Collard greens, chopped
5 cans chicken broth (8-10 cups)
1 can Cannelli beans (white kidney beans)
1 can white Great Northern Beans
2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 -2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
1/2 cup dry white rice
Saute garlic, onions, mushrooms and rice in olive oil until brown.
Add broth and chicken. Cook til rice is done (10-15 mins)
Add greens and beans. Cook about 5 minutes more.
Add salt and pepper to taste
Optional: grated mozzarella or provolone cheese to garnish


  1. I took the white away from the photo and tried to delete it, but now there are 2 photos. It's obvious I don't know what I'm doing!

  2. Sounds good. I'll have to try it!

  3. Mary Jane, thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words on my blog! I really appreciate it. I am trying to re-group and decide what I need to do now. It's ok though, God will lead me!

  4. Sorry I didn't see your post Jocelyn! I'm trying to do better with my blog, and plan to start posting more often. My life has been a nightmare the past 2 years!
