From the Test Kitchen

The cannellini bean (a white kidney bean) is a traditional Native American ingredient. Adopted by Tuscan cuisine, it made its way to France in the form of white bean soup. That’s how Thomas Jefferson, then Minister to France, discovered it. He loved the dish so much that he planted cannellini beans in his garden at Monticello, bringing them back to the Americas. Hearty, warming white bean soup became a fixture at presidential dinners in Washington and the Jefferson White House's food is still regarded as the best of any Presidential administration's.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Drain and rinse the beans. Cut the baguette in half horizontally. Peel and thinly slice the garlic. Separate the Swiss chard leaves and stems; roughly chop the leaves and finely chop the stems. Peel and halve the carrot lengthwise; thinly slice. Peel and small dice the onion. Pick the rosemary leaves off the stems; discard the stems and roughly chop the leaves to get 1 tablespoon of minced rosemary.
