The initial inspiration for this soup was drawn from Nagi’s Creamy Ham Bone Soup with Beans, which I then modified to create my own version. Despite its velvety and rich consistency, this soup is crafted without the use of any cream whatsoever.
So I Googled for “Pork and Bean” and came across this Corsican Bean Soup with Greens and Pork recipe on Food & Wine which sounded very interesting. Unfortunately I couldn’t source all the ingredients and had to make do with what I had. I also decided not to use the word Corsican in the title as I was not too sure how strict you have to follow this recipe to call it anything from Corsica.
