Soupy beans are one of the best things to eat. ;-) Yum! Thank you for sharing with Souper Sundays this week.

Simona Carini

You are welcome, Deb. It is always a pleasure to participate. And I agree, soupy beans are one of the best things to eat :)


I can always count on discovering something new when I visit your blog, and today's visit was no exception. I want to look out for these beans now. No chance of finding them fresh in these parts but l'll be on the lookout for the dry ones.

Simona Carini

I am glad I can provide information on "unusual" produce, Frank. I get so excited when I find something new to bring home and experiment with :)

Debra Keil

My stomach is growling. I would be smiling too with this soup in front of me.

Simona Carini

Thank you, Debra :)


You are always tempting me with delicious vegetables, like those lovely white beans, that we don't get here. I'm going to order the seeds and try growing them! Speaking of Camilleri, I discovered I hadn't read The Other End of the Line, published in translation this year, and am reading it now. Also, thanks for your author suggestion, Antonio Manzini.

Simona Carini

You are such an amazing gardener, Claudia, I hope you'll also be successful growing beans. I am going to pace myself in reading the remaining Montalbano novels, now that I know the remaining ones are also the last ones.


Sounds like a great series! These beans are lovely - I’d love to try growing some myself. I used to live near a farm that grew heirloom variety cranberry beans - I can imagine they would have been wonderful in this recipe.

Simona Carini

If you have never tried cooking fresh beans, Ali, I strongly recommend it. Cranberry beans are probably the most common variety that can be found fresh at the market. And yes, I expect they would work well in this recipe.
