Mediterranean White Bean Soup

As we inch closer to summer, we can take advantage of some of the cooler days we have left to try out a new soup recipe! The white beans offer a great source of protein, while the spinach, carrots and celery offer up a delightful mixture of healthy vegetables. Give this a try and let us know your thoughts!

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 large carrot chopped

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 15-ounces canned white beans drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups baby spinach
