Seven soups every Saturday: white bean soup recipes
Mouth feel. Food critics and restaurant reviewers and recipe developers talk about it all the time. Mouth feel means, simply, the combination of taste and texture that makes your mouth happy. White beans give soup great mouth feel; when puréed, they're creamy and rich, and when left whole, beans retain a little bit of chewy texture. Both large cannellini beans and small Navy beans absorb the flavors around them, and pair particularly well with smoky meats like bacon, sausage or ham. Tomatoes, rosemary and basil also bring out the best in beans.
