Tuscan Bean Soup recipe from Dr. Gourmet
Place the olive oil in a medium sauce pan over medium heat.

Add the onion and cook for about 3 minutes.

Add the beans, water, fennel, basil, oregano, marjoram, tomato paste, mustard, salt and pepper.

Stir well.

Simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

As the beans cook, add additional water to keep the beans from getting too dried out. Mash some of the beans against the side of the pot as you stir.

After about 20 - 25 minutes the soup begins to thicken up.
