Servings: 4


  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cans white cannellini beans drained
  • 1 parsnip peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 3 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 tsp salt (or more to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • freshly shaved for serving optional


  • Heat up the olive oil in a pot over a medium-low flame. Add in the diced onion and saute for 2 minutes, or until translucent. Add in the garlic and celery and cook for an additional 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
    Add in the beans, parsnip, and vegetable stock. Bring to a boil, lower the flame to medium and cook for 20-25 minutes, until the parsnip is soft.. 
    Transfer the soup to a blender and puree. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Just before serving, top with shaved Parmesan. 


I wait until the end to season the soup because some brands are saltier than others.
