Heartwarming Cannellini and Potato Soup

Sometimes, all you need is a heartwarming soup! Think of rainy days, coming back from work and feeling a bit tired. The easiest thing to do, in my experience, would be to either order some relatively questionable food from Deliveroo, or raid the fridge and pantry in the hopes of finding something that will satisfy your appetite quickly.

Chances are, sugar will be your go-to choice (not necessarily sweet food) and it will only make you feel worse: poor sleep quality, bloating, cranky, moody.

So I encourage you to put a little effort in the way you eat and create yourself the easiest but most nutritious meal you can. I put together this super easy recipe that only requires a few ingredients that most of us have at home.


2 large potatoes

1 can of cannellini beans (butter beans will work well too)

1 small garlic clove

1 tbsp rock salt

1 pinch of oregano

1 pinch of chilli flakes

1 pinch of pepper

Drizzle of olive oil


Start by peeling and washing the potatoes and putting them in a bowl full of water to avoid them from turning black.

Cut them in bite-size cubes.

Put a pot on the hob and drizzle with olive oil, reheat with garlic clove (if you don't want it to taste too garlickey, then remove it after having stir-fried it for a couple of minutes).

Once the oil is hot, but not boiling, add the potatoes and salt, then cover them with cold water.

Bring the potatoes to boil, then simmer for 20 minutes of until soft.

Bonus: In the meantime I usually go take a shower or do other errands around the house. This is entirely optional!

About 16 minutes in, drain the beans from the can and rinse them, then add them to the pot with the potatoes to simmer for 3-4 minutes.

Remove pot from the hob, add oregano, pepper and chilly flakes (bear in mind that you only need a few otherwise it will become very spicy).

And here you go! Serve warm and enjoy with a glass of good quality red wine.
