This was easy and flavorful. I used a pressure cooker. I sauteed the veggies then added the rest of ingredients. I used 2 cans cooked beans instead of uncooked. I cooked on high for 10 minutes and natural release for 10. It was perfect. Next time I would cut back on the water just a bit.
I make a very similar soup using canned beans. I put 1 can of rinsed cannellini beans into the soup but I pulverize a second can of beans in a food processor (or just mash them by hand), then add that to the soup to give it a slightly thick and creamy texture without adding any cream. To really add some extra flavor, add a small amount of Canadian bacon or lean ham (low fat) cut into pea sized pieces and just a bit of liquid smoke to really punch up the flavor. Delicious and healthy soup!
