White Bean, Sage, and Garlic Soup
It doesn’t take long to make this flavorful soup. Ready in about 30 minutes, it is a flavorful meal in a bowl. For something different try chopped walnut or hazelnut instead of cheese.

4 large garlic cloves
4 cups chicken/vegetable broth
1 bay leaf
2 cups white beans lightly crushed
½ tsp salt and pepper, or to taste
1 large egg, lightly beaten

Remove bay leaf. Remove pan from heat and whisk egg into soup.
