Directions

Place a medium, heavy soup pot over medium heat. Add the butter, olive oil, and shallot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the shallots are softened, about 5 minutes. Add the sage and beans and stir to combine. Add the stock and bring the mixture to a simmer. Add the garlic and simmer until the garlic is softened, about 10 minutes. Pour the soup into a large bowl. Carefully ladle 1/3 to 1/2 of the soup into a blender and puree until smooth. Be careful to hold the top of the blender tightly, as hot liquids expand when they are blended. Pour the blended soup back into the soup pan. Puree the remaining soup. Once all the soup is blended and back in the soup pan, add the cream and the pepper Keep warm, covered, over very low heat.

Place a grill pan over medium-high heat. Drizzle the slices of ciabatta bread with extra-virgin olive oil. Grill the bread until warm and golden grill marks appear, about 3 minutes a side. Serve the soup in bowls with the grilled bread alongside.

    If you blend in a little instant mashed potatoes with the beans you get a thicker soup with added flavor. This is a very simple very good soup.

    This soup was very good. I loved that it was so creamy with so little cream added. My modifications included adding 5 sage leaves, because I find that herb very mild as it is. It was a good choice. My husband said that he wished there were more beans. I added two cans, but pureed one, so i think maybe 3 would be better for something a little more hearty. Thanks Giada.
