Featured Recipe: 10-Minute White Bean Soup with Toasted Cheese and Tomato

What You’ll Need

  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, each about 6 inches long
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 ½ cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • Two 15-ounce cans of cannellini or other white beans, strained and rinsed
  • 1 small shallot, peeled, trimmed and halved
  • 1 small garlic, clove, peeled, trimmed and halved
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices crusty sourdough bread (each about 1-inch think; 8 ounces total)
  • ¾ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped (about 1 cup)
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan


Position a rack about 4 inches from the broiler heat source, and preheat. Bring the wine, rosemary, thyme and 2 cups of the chicken broth to a boil in a covered medium saucepan over high heat. Reduce to a bare simmer.

Puree the beans, shallots, garlic, oil, butter, remaining 1/2 cup chicken broth, 1/2 teaspoon salt, a few grinds of pepper and 1/2 cup of the simmering broth in a blender until completely smooth and emulsified, about 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, lay the bread slices on a rimmed baking sheet, and top evenly with the mozzarella. Broil until the tops are browned and bubbling, 1 to 2 minutes; remove from the oven. Divide the tomatoes evenly among the toasts, and top with the Parmesan.

Remove the herb sprigs from the simmering broth; set aside. Whisk the bean puree into the broth, and return it to a gentle boil. Ladle the soup into bowls, and garnish with the reserved herb sprigs and a few grinds of black pepper. Serve with the cheese toasts.

Intracoastal Realty 2015 Christmas Party

Here are photos from our 2015 Christmas Party!


Intracoastal Realty Food Drive For Help Center of Federal Point

1 2 3 6

For December, the Carolina Beach office for Intracoastal Realty participated in their annual holiday food drive, and collected food donations and delivered to the local Carolina Beach food pantry also known as the Help Center of Federal Point located on Carolina Beach.

Founded by local ministers and residents of Pleasure Island in 1985, the center was established to help meet growing needs of citizens in the community. The name “H.E.L.P Center” stands for “help establish love for all people.”  Since its creation, the Federal Point Help Center has grown leaps and bounds.Once interviewing clients in their homes and making direct food deliveries, the Federal Point Help Center is happy now to call the Carolina Beach Recreation Center home.  Servicing more than 10,000 people since 1985, the center has helped residents in need of food, clothing, help with utility bills, rent and anything else it can afford.

Intracoastal Realty Food Drive For The Food Bank of Eastern NC

Intracoastal Realty Food Drive Food Bank of Eastern NC Wrightsville Beach

The little elves at the Wrightsville Beach Vacation Rental office have been very busy collecting food for the Intracoastal Realty Food Drive that benefits the Food Bank of Eastern North Carolina. Intracoastal Realty participated in a food drive during the month of December and here is a small sampling of what one of our offices donated. In total, the Intracoastal Realty Food Drive delivered over 400 pounds of food to the Food Bank of ENC which provided 338 meals to those in need.

Intracoastal Realty Supports NourishNC For The Holidays

NourishNC Charity Selection by Intracoastal RealtyThe corporate office for Intracoastal Realty chosen NourishNC as our holiday sponsorship for 2015. As part of our donation, we were able to help feed 585 hungry kids in 28 schools.

Below is some information on this wonderful cause.

The Problem

Childhood hunger is rising in New Hanover County. As of May 2015, over 12,000 children in our local area qualify for free-or-reduced school lunch, which equates to 1 in 4 children in our County.

That’s the reality of our situation.

This cuts across all color lines. Every school in the county is affected. The problem is real. The problem is immediate. There are kids, thousands of them, in our county that are going hungry right now.

Food Insecurity Leads to a Range of Problems Including…

  • Higher number of chronic health conditions
  • Higher hospitalization rates
  • Iron deficiency anemia
  • Behavioral problems
  • Lower physical functioning
  • Higher rates of depressive disorder and suicidal symptoms in adolescents
  • Lower math and reading achievements
  • Hungry kids end up in jail

When a child experiences food insecurity, they go through periods where there’s not enough to eat and where they can’t reliably predict where their next meal is coming from. Over time, we see a negative spiral of events that often ends in disaster.

We have to ask ourselves, do we really want to put 25% of our county’s children on a downward slope?

Our answer is clear, and we believe the community’s answer is clear.
NOWe WILL NOT let children go hungry. Not here. Not when we can take steps to fix the situation. Child hunger is our problem as a community. But, as a community, we are also the solution. To do this, it takes more than us. We need you too.

The Solution

The solution to ending child hunger is a task that requires participation from the state and federal government, private businesses, the local community, individual families, and parents. The roots of the problem are systemic and can seem overwhelming. At NourishNC we’re taking steps to end child hunger in New Hanover County, NC.

1. We Purchase and Distribute Free Food to Hungry Children

Our primary mission is to feed hungry children. We provide children with eight meals and two snack each weekend of the year as well as three meals a day over extended school-designated breaks (holiday, spring and summer).

Through our partnership with New Hanover Co. schools, we worked with social workers at each school we serve to identify children going hungry on the weekends. We currently feed more than 540 children enrolled in 25 New Hanover Co. schools, with the hopes of serving 600 by the end of 2015.

While we are making a real impact in the lives of hundreds of children, there are still thousands more that need our help.

2. Awareness

It’s hard to believe that out of 25,547 children in our community, 12,778 are on free or reduced lunch. Of those, 11,307 kids are getting free lunch. These kids are at high risk to experience food insecurity. The numbers shocked us when we found out just how large the problem was in our own back yard. We work with community leaders, non-profit organizations, and local government, to bring attention, resources, and ultimately solutions to this problem. But we need YOU! The key to addressing childhood hunger locally, is bringing awareness to our community. Like, share and post anything related to NourishNC and childhood hunger on our social media outlets to help spread the word.

Community Involvement

Part of what has made NourishNC successful to date is that we actively seek out local community partners to help us in our mission. We see ourselves as another strand in the social safety net. We’re connected with local food banks, outreach organizations, non-profits, community leaders, and local politicians. We work with them at all stages of our involvement. From identifying the children we help, to assisting us with purchasing, and fulfillment.
