  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 4 boneless (skinless chicken thighs, cut into approx. 1/2-inch dice)
  • 3 stalks celery (thinly sliced)
  • 2 medium carrots (peeled and diced)
  • 1 medium red bell pepper (diced)
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes (cut in half)
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 5 sage leaves (finely chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped rosemary
  • 2 sprigs of thyme (finely chopped)
  • 1 can (14-ounces of cannellini beans)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Shaved parmesan (optional, to serve)


  1. Put all the ingredients, apart from the bean and salt and pepper in a large saucepan. Simmer for 30 minutes until soft and meltingly good.
  2. Add the beans and season. At this point you can stir it up so that the bean mush incorporates into the broth, giving it more body.
  3. Serve topped with shaved Parmesan if you wish.
