White bean soup

White Bean Soup

Italy’s in my white iron pot.
Bless her,
Marcella,
and her simplicity.

“What you omit is more important
than what you put in,” she says.

No bacon.
No ham.
No bones.
No onions.
No carrots.
No kale.

Soup that stands up
and salutes garlic.

So, I’m doing a Hazan.
Doing her white bean,
garlic and parsley soup.

It’s soup season.
It’s winter.

    • Our local farm shop has wet garlic in stock now. It’s absolutely brilliant compared to the dried sort. If you can ever get your hands of it, buy it. Or grow it yourself!
