Chicken Soup with Provençal Herbs

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chicken_soup_with_proven_al_herbs.html

From EatingWell:  January/February 1995

Using dried beans instead of canned in this flavorful chicken soup results in a thicker soup with more complex flavor. Make it a meal: Serve alongside Leek & Gruyere Quiche with Cherry Clafoutis for dessert.

6 servings, a generous 1 cup each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 8 1/2 hours (includes soaking time)

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Rinse beans and pick over, cover with water and set aside to soak for 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Heat oil in a large pot over medium-low heat. Add leeks, carrots and garlic; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes. Add potatoes and cook for 5 minutes. Add broth, wine , thyme, rosemary and bay leaf; bring to a boil. Drain the beans and add to the pot; cook until the beans are soft, about 2 hours. Remove the bay leaf and herb sprigs before serving.
