Vegetable White Bean Soup

by Brittany on September 9, 2011

After purchasing two bags-worth of honey gold potatoes on sale at Publix yesterday, I decided that the best way to use them up would be in the form of a winter-vegetable soup. I threw together this boyfriend-approved quick and healthy soup recipe, packed with good-for-you veggies and white kidney beans. The best part is that it’s easily adaptable, so feel free to add or subtract any vegetables you’d like!

Easy healthy vegetable soup

Serves: 4-6

Time: 30 minutes


  •   2 sliced carrots
  • 1 cup chopped green beans
  • 1 diced onion
  • 2 cups of sliced potatoes (I used honey gold)
  • 1 can Cannellini white kidney beans (19 oz.)
  • 1 cup fresh chopped spinach
  • 1 can vegetable broth (16 oz.)
  • 1 can of water
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • Creole seasoning
  • Salt & pepper


1. In a large pot, combine carrots, green beans, onion, potatoes, kidney beans, spinach, vegetable broth, and water.

2.  Bring soup to a boil, reduce heat, then cover and allow to cook for 20 minutes. Add in oregano and seasonings to taste.

A bit to think about: Do you prefer broth or cream-based soups?

I prefer broth based soups. :) Cream ones make me feel not so good! I almost bought a cute little bag of potatoes at Publix yesterday..until I remembered I had to walk home with them. Great simple veggie soup recipe!

You should have gone for the taters! Now you left the cute little things all alone at Publix :(

I like broth-based just because they tend to have more things in them… I get bored with creamy puree soups. The more different ingredients the better–and your soup definitely meets that criteria! Yummm

This sounds really good! I love soup and it honestly is starting to get cold around here so I think it’s time for it! I like both broth and cream based, but
I don’t like things too creamy tasting when it comes to soup. Not good on the tummy.

I like both! I tend to stick to the broth based ones because I know that they are better for me though. But they are all pretty tasty!

I like both! I like creamy soups but I know they usually aren’t as healthy, so I tend to stick to broth-based.

This recipe looks great and super yummy! :)

I prefer broth based soup because I don’ feel weighted down after I eat them. Your soup looks great! I can’t wait to try it. :)

It was great ;)

Ohh what a delicious looking soup!! Thank you for the recipe! I’ve never actually made my own soup before because I thought it was too hard but now I feel like I can give it a try! And I prefer broth based soups! My only exception is for tomato basil or butternut squash soups (my faves) as long as they don’t have milk or cream added because that upsets my stomach!

Broth, of course!! Cream soups make me feel gross after…… :/
