Nothing is more comforting on a cold or gloomy day than a warm bowl of soup. This white bean and pancetta soup is simple to make and very satisfying.

Beans are a great source of prebiotic fiber for the microbes in your gut. They also provide ample protein to the diet. This combination of protein and fiber makes beans very filling. The salty pancetta in this recipe gives the mild beans a nice burst of flavor while the fresh thyme and garlic round out the dish splendidly.

I like to partially puree this soup so half of the beans are creamy and the other half is left chunky, which gives it a hearty consistency.
