White Tuscan Soup with bread

Tuscan White Bean Soup

If you’re looking for a dairy-free soup with a vegan version option (use coconut oil instead of butter and vegetable stock in place of chicken), then you’ll love my Tuscan White Bean Soup. Rich in nutrients that support bone and teeth health, healthy mood and energy production, while reducing the risk for metabolic syndrome and diabetes and more, this soup will be a crowd-pleaser.
