Farmer’s Soup San Francisco Style


I am always looking for yummy, healthy recipes to make ahead, so I have good food during the week even with a super busy schedule. This time I came across a super healthy recipe, that I think is very San Francisco Style;organic and healthy:)

This Farmer’s Soup definitely does take some prep time, but in the end it is so worth it and simply delicious, assuming you like legumes and veggies:) It is easy to make though and living healthy can be so easy all of a sudden:)

Recipe for 4 people:

  • 400g Farmers soup legumes mix (this you can by as one dry mix at organic food stores that includes: borlotti beans, lentils, chickpeas, canellini beans, red azuk, beans, yellow soy, occhio beans, broken green peas, San Matteo red beans, peeled broad beans)
  • 100 g peeled tomatoes
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic glove
  • 1 onion
  • 1 stick celery
  • 1 carrot, salt and pepper to taste


  • Soak legumes in cold water for about 12 hours
  • drain and cook in abundant salted water for about 35 minutes
  • meanwhile, peel and finely chop the garlic, onion, celery and carrot and saute in oil
  • drain and add the legumes, add salt and pepper to taste
  • leave to season for a few minutes, then add the tomatoes passed through a sieve or crushed and enough water so the soup becomes fairly liquid
  • continue cooking for about 20 minutes
  • finally add a drop of olive oil and serve very hot with croutons or sprinkle of cheese to taste


Tip: You can add whatever veggies you like or even mushrooms. I added more carrots and celery because I loves veggies, but that is all up to your taste:)
