This recipe came about in the name of shalom bayis. My husband prefers soups that are smooth and pureed, while I like chunky soups with pieces of vegetables that I can actually discern. So, for years (and I’ve been married over 10 years now), I’ve been making two soups on soup nights. Then, I came up with this solution, which makes us both happy.
Tomato-Pepper Soup with Cannellini Beans

Prepare the Soup
Heat oil in a large pot. Add onions and sauté for five minutes. Add garlic and sauté five more minutes.
Add onion mixture to a food processor with peppers, beans, and tomato paste, and blend until creamy. Transfer back to pot.

Add water to just cover vegetables. Cook over low heat for two and a half hours and serve.
