  1. Put the oil and garlic in a soup pot over medium heat. Sauté until the garlic is a very pale gold.
  2. Add the beans, and salt and pepper to taste. Cover and then sauté gently for 5-6 minutes.
  3. Take a cup of beans from the pot and purée them in a blender or food processor.
  4. Return to the pot, add the stock, and simmer for another 5-6 minutes.
  5. Taste, adjust salt and pepper, swirl in the parsley, and turn off the heat.
  • This soup is almost solid enough to serve as a side dish, but if you'd like it thinner, just add a little more stock or water.
