Best ever cannellini and butter bean soup

44

Nothing says "comfort" to me like a big pot of steamy cannellini and butter bean soup, simmering on the stove.

8 people
500 ml stock (chicken or vegetable base)
500 ml water
300 g cannellini beans (dry)
200 g butter beans (dry)
300 g bacon (sliced)
2 medium onions
1/2 leek
2 large carrots
3 stalks celery
3 cloves garlic
2 leaves bay
1 sprig thyme (fresh or dry)
3 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp salt
1/6 black pepper (freshly ground)
1 can tomatoes (chopped)
3 springs dill (fresh)
3 springs parsley (fresh)
1/2 tsp italian herbs (mixed)
1 tbsp olive oil (optional)
  1. Start by soaking the beans over night if you wish. This is not necessary, but it is recommended to diminish the cooking time. I, however don't do this since I cook my beans in a pressure cooker...
