Cozy up with a bowl of this creamy and flavorful Tuscan White Bean Soup made with with cheese tortellini and lots of veggies!
I’m so stinkin’ excited to share this one-pot soup recipe today!
I first made it as part of our weekly meal prep prep and decided it need a home on this blog of mine, stat! It’s fantastic on both the first and second day and totally earned itself a spot on my make-again list. <— I think I need a better name for this list…
Rockstar recipes to repeat?
Yessss! Love it!
Let’s get our soup on!
White Beans FTW!
This tasty tortellini soup is packed with heart-healthy fiber and veggies!
To add extra creaminess without adding a boatload of extra cream or making a roux, I like to blend half the white beans before adding them to the soup.
You can blend them in a food processor or blender or, if you have an immersion blender, simply blend some of the soup before adding the tortellini!
For a brothier soup, simply leave the beans whole and you’re good to go.
I used cannellini beans but you could also use great northern beans here – both white beans are fantastic for soups!
Looking for a vegan white bean soup?
I’ve got your back! Make sure you use the vegetable broth/stock option from the recipe card and simply skip the heavy cream and tortellini. The soup is crazy flavorful on it’s own and you can even add extra white beans or even cooked rice if desired.
Tuscan White Bean Soup with Tortellini
The recipe below yields 11 cups of soup, or about 4-5 meal-sized bowls.
It’s amazing the next day so feel free to squirrel some away as leftovers. The soup itself can also be frozen before adding the tortellini if you want to freeze some for later. Simply add the fresh tortellini while reheating the soup on the stove and you’re good to go!
The flavors of this soup are out of this world! I’m loving the combination of rosemary, sun-dried tomato, garlic, herbs, and veggies in this creamy, comforting bean soup!
