This soup really surprised me as it has a very creamy consistency I would not have thought possible for a soup that does not use any dairy products. The secret is blending half of the soup after the cooking time- the white beans will work the magic. Definitely a recipe to make it into my repertoire.
Gluten-free: Use gluten-free pasta. I tried some red lentil pasta in this soup but found that the lentil taste was too strong. I would recommend using gluten-free pasta made from corn flour.
