|Ingredients for my Tuscan White Bean Soup other than the beans!|
All of the fresh and wonderful vegetable and herb flavors were there in the soup but I couldn't help but think there was something missing. It needed some bacon fat or a ham hock or something to the next level. This is the first of Emeril's recipes that I've cooked that I haven't been completely inspired by. I know it may have had a lot to do with not being able to find the broccoli rabe, but I still just was not impressed by the soup. That's okay though. I still have a book to give away and more recipes to cook!
