Canned cannellini beans meet Sofrito and Vegetable Stock in this very quick, very delicious and very, very satisfying soup. For a more stew-like consistency, mash half of the beans with a potato masher or the back of a wooden spoon. Serve up a small cup to start a meal or a big bowl that is the meal. Simple and super delicious.
