Simple Soup’s On

Even Popeye knows how good this soup is!

As the weather turns chillier, healthy eaters tend to migrate from their summer salads to comforting bowls of soup.  I love soup.  Not only can it be a great way to get a day’s serving of vegetables, it’s usually super easy to make.  It’s healthy too…if you skip the ones made with boatloads of cream and butter.  (Although once in a while its ok to indulge in Julia Childs’ potato leek soup recipe — the best!)  Here’s a super simple soup recipe that’s packed with the goodness of spinach.

Ingredients:

6 cups chicken stock

1 package chopped, frozen spinach

1 can white beans, drained (kidney or cannelini)

1 tsp olive oil

1-2 clove garlic, minced

salt, pepper to taste

Heat the olive oil in a large pot.  Sautee the garlic.  Add the chicken stock.  Bring to a boil.  Add the frozen spinach and beans.  Bring to a simmer.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Serve!  (I prefer mine with a healthy dose of parmigiano cheese). 

Buon Appetito!  (I told you it was easy!)
