Nothing, and I mean nothing is more satisfying and soothing than a bowl of white asparagus soup. Especially when they come into season in the springtime. I have such fond memories of enjoying this amazing soup on my last trip to Germany a couple of years ago. White asparagus has a milder flavor than the green ones. Here, I make a dairy-free version using coconut milk instead of cream. My Healthy On You® Provence You’ve Been Gone spice blend adds a herby flavor with hints of lavender that makes this soup delightful!

Tuscan White Bean Tomato and Farro Soup

let the good thymes roll

So I was having guests over for dinner last night and want to keep it simple. A good hearty bowl of soup, a salad, and a blackberry crumble. Nothing too crazy, right? After searching through my pantry and refrigerator, I discovered I had all the ingredients for a Tuscan White Bean Soup. I like this version using fresh Tuscan kale from my garden and healthy nutritious farro. Farro is an ancient grain that is high in fiber, protein and rich in B vitamins.

Tuscan White Beans with Herbed Shrimp

let the good thymes roll

I love this recipe and tend to make it often throughout the seasons. It’s low in fat and keeps you full. I always keep frozen shrimp in the freezer and my pantry is usually stocked with a variety of beans. I really enjoy Italian cooking but found it difficult to find a spice blend that was fragrant and flavorful enough for my taste, so I created the Healthy On You® Let the Good Thymes Roll Italian spice blend. This blend really does it for me with chunks of dried garlic, sage, basil, parsley, marjoram and red pepper and it’s salt-free to boot!
