An easy, flavourful soup made with protein and fibre packed white beans, veggies and broth. Perfect for a cozy night inside and delicious with fresh parmesan on top.

    In a large dutch oven or pot, over medium heat add the oil. Once hot, add the onion and saute for 4 to 5 minutes, until translucent and softened.

    Divide into bowls and top with parmesan cheese and parsley. Serve and enjoy!
