Recipe tips
  • Like many traditional recipes, this soup tends to be made with whatever is available. You can add all sorts of vegetables, such as pumpkin, courgettes or celery, or add different beans, pasta, or even meat, such as ham.
  • Borlotti beans are low in fat, packed with dietary fibre and a good source of protein and folate.
  • Using strong flavoured cheese, such as Parmesan, Gran Padano or Cheddar, means that you can use less of it in your cooking, but still enjoy great taste.
  • Freezing instructions: Freeze in portions then defrost in the fridge, or defrost in a microwave stirring regularly.
