  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 large red potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 6 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 (15.5 oz) cans cannellini beans
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
