Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    Open can of low sodium black beans. Pour contents into saucepan. Add 3 cans of water to pan. Turn heat on High.

    Chop 1/2 cup onions & add to pot. Add 3 cups mushroom slices to pot. Stir. Chop 1 cup carrots & add to pot. Stir again. Add 9 oz chopped, precooked chicken. Stir.

    Add the following spices: 2 teaspoons each of dried basil and parsley. Add 1Tablespoon dried garlic OR 3 cloves garlic. Add cayenne pepper to taste. (I like 1/2 tsp, but I go spicy). Stir the pot again. Sneak a taste.

    When the liquid begins to boil, add the pasta. Cook al dente. The starch in the liquid helps give the soup its velvet texture. When the pasta are done to taste, stir in the fresh leaves of spinach. Let them wilt & serve up the soup in large mugs or bowls.

Tips

Diabetics should consider omitting the pasta to keep from having a blood sugar spike. Another option is to halve the beans & pasta amounts.
