  • 4 tbsp Member's Mark™ Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
  • 1/2 medium Yellow onion, diced
  • 3 Carrots, peeled and diced
  • 2 Celery sticks, diced
  • 1 medium Yellow zucchini, diced
  • Member's Mark™ Sea Salt Grinder, divided
  • 6 cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Member's Mark™ Curry Powder

  • Warm 3 tablespoons of Member's Mark™ Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a large Dutch oven or soup pot over medium heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add the chopped onion, carrot, celery, yellow zucchini, and ½ teaspoon Member's Mark™ Sea Salt Grinder. Cook, stirring often, until the onion has softened and is turning translucent, about 6 to 8 minutes.

  • Raise the heat and bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Add the Great Northern beans, and stir. Partially cover the pot and reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer.
  • Cook for 25 minutes. Turn off the heat and remove the Spice Islands® Bay Leaves. Stir in the lemon juice and remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Taste and season with more salt and pepper, as desired.
