FTOC Nutrition Program: April Recipe

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 celery rib chopped
  • 6 cups vegetable broth (you can substitute “Better Than Boullion” soup base and water)
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 15-ounces canned white beans drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • Fresh parsley for serving
  • Grated parmesan cheese for serving

Directions:

  1. In a large pot or saucepan, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add onions and cook until onions are translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Add the garlic, carrots, celery, thyme ,oregano, salt and pepper, and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add vegetable broth and beans, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes to combine all of the flavors together. Stir in the spinach and continue to simmer until the spinach wilts, about 2 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat, sprinkle fresh parsley and grated parmesan cheese, if desired. Serve immediately.
