1 can of white navy beans

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp Italian seasoning

2 fresh garlic cloves, chopped

1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes, diced

  3. Add the broth and beans.  Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until zucchini is soft.

No sun dried tomatoes: Use roasted red peppers instead.

No Italian seasoning: use any combination of fresh or dried herbs such as rosemary, thyme, or basil

If using dried beans, pre-cook them in the pressure cooker using 1 part beans and 3.5 parts water. Cook on high pressure for 30 minutes and then natural release. No soaking required.

      Oopsy! Updated now 🙂 Throw them in whenever girl! I like to put them in before I blend the soup, but if you like the beans whole you could wait until after!
