Chicken & White Bean Soup

By Logo inline

Once again, rotisserie chickens can really relieve the dinner-rush pressure-especially in this Italian-inspired soup that cries out for a piece of crusty bread and a glass of red wine.

Nutritionist Tested & Approved

Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 leeks, white and light green parts only, cut into 1/4-inch rounds

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage, or 1/4 teaspoon dried

  • 1 2-pound roasted chicken, skin discarded, meat removed from bones and shredded (4 cups)

Directions
  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add leeks and cook, stirring often, until soft, about 3 minutes. Stir in sage and continue cooking until aromatic, about 30 seconds. Stir in broth and water, increase heat to high, cover and bring to a boil. Add beans and chicken and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 3 minutes. Serve hot.

This soup sounds delicious. I'm not fond of leeks though. Can I substitute, say, onion or scallion? Thank you.
