Sometimes the best (and easiest) recipes come together when you are just completely winging it. Camila created this recipe for White Bean Soup on one of those days when she had no inspiration in the kitchen, so she decided to take what she had leftover in the fridge, and it was a success!


  • 1 bag white beans, soaked overnight and rinsed, or boil them and rinse them a couple of times
  • 1 large white or yellow onion 
  • 1 large tomato
  • 3 garlic cloves 
  • 1 small handful of celery 
  • 2 bay leaves
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp. avocado oil
If you eat meat:
  • bacon or chicken stock
Optional toppings:
  • avocado
  • kale
  • peppers


  • Chop onion, tomato, garlic, and celery
  • Heat pan with avocado oil to medium-high.
  • Add garlic, onion, and salt.
  • Once the onions become translucent add tomatoes. Once that becomes a paste add the celery and continue to cook.
  • Add the beans and bay leaves. Cover with hot water about 3 to 4 fingers above the beans and let it cook until the beans are soft.
  • Remove 3/4 of the beans and liquid, and blend into a paste consistency add that back to the pot to make the whole thing creamy! Check for salt and pepper.
  • Top with herbs and avocados or thin sliced sautéed kale and some hot peppers if you like the heat!!
