Simple Spinach and White Bean Soup

How has everyone been holding up during these past few frigid days?  Here in NY we have been working with single digit temperature and negative wind chills (which, with our couple of past warm winters, has been a real shock!)  During this chilly month I have been eating tons and tons of soup.  Nothing warms the soul better than a nice bowl of soup on a cold winter day.


1 14oz can of cannelloni beans (or you can use a cup of dry beans)
8 oz of spinach (washed and chopped)
4 cups of vegetable broth
1/2 small onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, sliced
1 teaspoon of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Begin by heating the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat.  Add chopped onion and cook for 3 minutes.  Add garlic and cook for two more minutes.  Drain beans and add them to the saucepan.  Add vegetable broth and bring to a boil.  Once boiling, lower heat and allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and then add chopped spinach.  Remove from heat and enjoy!
