Creamy Soups with Pureed Beans

For your next pot of soup, create a rich, creamy texture without all the fat by stirring in a can of pureed white beans. This trick can work with any soup you’d like to add a creamy texture, such as potato, tomato, squash, or lentil. When the soup is done, drain and rinse a can of white beans and blend in a food processor or blender. Add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and ¼ cup of water to the pureed beans. Stir into the soup and heat through.
