Parsley oil:

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • splash of water
  • salt


  1. Finely dice the onion, peel and finely slice the garlic, finely dice the carrot, and roughly dice the fresh tomatoes. 
  2. In a large pot add a drizzle of olive oil. Place the onion, garlic and carrot into the pot and cook for 2 minutes, stirring until slightly cooked through and aromatic. 
  3. Add the cannellini beans, the fresh tomatoes and the tin of tomatoes. Mix through to combine and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the water for the soup, as well as the smoked paprika, and crumble in the vegetable stock cube. Cover with a lid and bring to the boil. 
  4. Reduce the heat to a low simmer and cook for 15 minutes.
