Traditional. There is nothing quite as satisfying as a bowl of rich, hearty soup. Soups are eaten in almost every corner of the world and over the years, certain soups have become associated with particular countries. Italy is no exception with several regions boasting claim to some of the world's best soups. The White Bean Soups of Tuscany are unforgettable, white beans in a rich, thick broth laden with the taste of vegetables such as carrots, peas, zucchini, broccoli and garlic.
The taste of this rustic yet elegant Tuscan classic will long be remembered. People today eat soup for different reasons than they did yester year. Once considered an inexpensive meal for the poor, soup has become popular among the health conscious consumers of today. There is a saying about soups in Southern Italy that translates to: Soup does seven things. It relieves your hunger, quenches your thirst, fills your stomach, cleans your teeth, makes you sleep, helps you digest and colors yours cheeks.
