Ingredients

    Olive Oil, 1 tbsp
    Onions, raw, 1 medium (2-1/2" dia)
    Carrots, raw, 2 large (7-1/4" to 8-1/2" long)
    Celery, raw, 2 stalk, large (11"-12" long)
    Yukon Gold Potato, 1 serving
    Garlic, 2 clove
    Beans, red kidney, 1.5 cup

    Quinoa Pasta, Gluten Free, 4 oz
    Canned Tomatoes, 1.5 cup
    Vegetable Broth, 46 fl oz
    Salt, 1 tsp
    Basil, 4 leaves

Tips

Check the broth to make sure it's gluten free. After I made this, I felt like I wanted more veggies, past and beans to make it a little more hardy. It's still pretty close to comfort food:) Yummy!


Directions

Heat olive oil in dutch oven or other large pot. Sautee Carrots, onion and celery. Add 1/8 tsp salt. Let soften. Add diced potato and garlic cloves (minced). Cook for about 3 minutes. Add 1/8 tsp salt. Add canned tomatos, kidney beans and 3 cans of low sodium vegetable broth. (Regular vegetable broth might make it too salty, but use whatever you want.) Let simmer for 20 minutes. Add pasta, spinach, basil, and 1/2 tsp salt. Let cook for 6-10 minutes depending on how long the pasta cooks for.
