White Bean Soup


Today I am sharing with you a very delicious white bean soup recipe. It takes little time to cook but it is very healthy and yummy. White kidney beans are rich in fiber both soluble and insoluble. Once in your digestive system, soluble fiber binds itself with the bile acids and removes it out of your body. This prevents such bile acids from being reabsorbed in your liver and hence inhibits synthesis of harmful cholesterol.Rich in vitamin B9 -- also called folate or folic acid -- and low in fat, white kidney beans are heart-healthy. Folate reduces the levels of the amino acid homocysteine in the bloodstream.White kidney beans are rich in vitamin B1, or thiamin, which is necessary for formation and operation of brain cells. Thiamin is a key component in the synthesis of acetylcholine, which ensures that your memory functions properly. When eaten daily, a 1-cup serving of white kidney beans can help improve and maintain your cognitive function. A very delicious and healthy recipe on your way. You can add greens to this soup to make it more healthy. Enjoy white bean soup.
