Artichoke Heart/Cannelini Bean/Basil Soup

After baking Pizza with Plums, Red Onions, Gorgonzola and Pine Nuts , I decided to test one of the 6 recipes Robyn Webb is working on for Diabetes Forecast. I have less than two weeks to test all 6 (check back in for more info)

I have been testing Robyn's recipes for a few years now, and this was definitely a good one! I can't provide the specific measurements, but here are the steps:

1) puree a can each of artichoke hearts and cannelini beans

2) add minced garlic and onion to heated oil and cook for a bit

3) add pureed artichoke hearts, cannelini beans, chicken stock, salt and red pepper flakes

4) bring the mixture to a simmer, add basil and cook for a few more minutes

5) pour the soup into bowls and garnish with toasted slivered almonds

The soup was very easy to make and yet very rich in flavor! The picture of the final product wasn't too appetizing, so I'm omitting it :)
