Creamy Spanish White Bean Soup | Easy, Healthy & Packed with Flavor

This Creamy Spanish White Bean Soup, known in Spain as ¨Crema de Alubias Blancas¨, is packed with flavors, easy to make and made with simple ingredients. You can serve it chilled on a hot summer´s day or even warm on a cold winter´s day.

Creamy Spanish White Bean Soup
My favorite part about this recipe, is that it´s super healthy and you don´t have to cook anything. Just throw the ingredients into the food processor and process away, until you end up with a beautiful creamy texture. Folks, it does not get any easier than this.

Creamy Spanish White Bean Soup
The secret to this soup is to use a great vegetable broth. It´s what really flavors the entire dish. I used 2 cups cooked white beans to 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth, to end up with the perfect creamy texture. If you want your soup a bit thicker, add in a 1/4 cup less broth, and if you want it thinner, a 1/4 cup more broth.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: As stated above, you can serve this soup chilled or warm. If you opt for the warm version, just add the soup into a sauce pan once it´s well mixed. Heat with a low heat and cook for 5 to 10 minutes. You might need to add in more broth, as it will really thicken up when you heat it.
