Soup

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    *Homemade vegetable stock, 6 cup
    Carrots, raw, 3 medium
    Celery, raw, 2 stalk, medium (7-1/2" - 8" long)
    *Progresso Canellini Beans, 1 can (cup) rinsed and drained
    Spinach, fresh, 2 cup, coarsely chopped
    Bullion Cube, Vegetable, Low-Sodium, gluten free -3 small cubes
    Thyme, fresh, 2 tsp or 1 tbsp dry
    Brown or white Rice, long grain, .5 cup
    Bay Leaf, 1 small leaf
    Kosher Salt, .5 tbsp (or to taste)
    Pepper, black, 1 tsp (or to taste)
    Onions, raw, 1 small
    Olive Oil, 2 tbsp
    Garlic, 2 clove
    Medium stock pot with lid

Directions

Thinly slice carrots and celery
Chop onion finely
mince garlic

Add olive oil to stock pot and saute together above vegetables. Add salt, pepper, bay leaf & thyme.

When onions are translucent add bullion cubes and stir until dissolved.

Then add vegetable stock and fresh chopped spinach. Bring to a boil. Then add rinsed and drained rice to the pot.
Return to a boil over medium-high heat. Stirring occasionally.

Cover and bring heat to low/simmer for 20 minutes.

** DO NOT open the lid or the rice will not cook properly!!

After the 20 minutes is up... stir in rinsed and drained Cannellini Beans.

Cover and cook another 10 minutes over low heat or until the cannellini beans are heated through.

(Add more salt & pepper to taste)

Also, if you like your soup a little thicker (stew like) just add 3/4 to 1 cup of rice to pot instead of 1/2 a cup. And if using brown rice I would add on about 10 minutes as it may take a bit longer to cook than white rice. :-)

**Don't forget to remove the Bay Leaf before serving! :-)

Serves 8-10
