Garlic Bean Soup Have I mentioned that when I am stressed out, I eat a lot of garlic. 

source url A LOT. Like roast it up and stand over the stove so the smell seeps into your hair.

This is all Marcella and Alexandra.

I just added more garlic,

and I had different beans,

and different herbs..

Makes 2 big helpings.


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 large garlic cloves, diced
  • 3 cups beans (soaked and cooked is great, but canned and drained is fine too)
  • maybe some leftover shredded rotisserie chicken, like if you picked it from the carcass
  • 2 cups chicken stock (or water)
  • cheese cheese cheese, Parmesan, grated
  • salt and pepper
  • optional bread garnish

In a nice pot, heat up the olive oil on medium and add the garlic. Cook and stir until it starts to brown just a little. Don’t leave the pot. It will burn on you so fast.

Add the beans and chicken and cook for another minute or two. Add in the stock. I added more stock than Marcela because I wanted a little heft (I have been doing a lot of swimming). Make sure you season it to your liking, and turn the heat way down so you simmer for 10 minutes or so.

Eat it with cheese.


And a chunk of bread.

And if you need help soaking and cooking beans, see Alexandra’s link. Just be sure to save that bean cooking liquid. I use it to cook quinoa and couscous and rice and make more soups..

And relax. It’s just four long years of being stressed out..
