This soup has it all: protein, calcium, minerals, and more! If you’re short on time, use canned beans. For a heartier meal, serve over pasta or grilled polenta. Add some garlic bread and you have a delicious feast.

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon dried basil

In a Dutch oven over medium heat, sauté garlic and onion in olive oil 3 minutes or until soft. Add basil, oregano and rosemary and stir.
