Garden Vegetable Bean Soup Recipe
What You Need
• 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
• 1 cup sliced celery
• 3 medium carrots, sliced
• 2 teaspoons minced garlic
• 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
• 2 cans (15 ounces each) Navy beans or Great Northern beans or 3 cups cooked dry-packaged Navy beans or Great Northern beans, rinsed, drained and divided
• 2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
• 2 cups broccoli florets
• 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves
• 1/4 teaspoon ground thyme leaves
• 1 cup salad spinach
• Salt and pepper, to taste

What To Do
1. Sauté onion, celery, carrots, and garlic in oil in large saucepan 3 to 4 minutes. Add 1 can beans, chicken broth, broccoli florets, and herbs to saucepan; heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer until broccoli is tender, 5 to 7 minutes.

2. While soup is cooking, process remaining beans in food processor or mash until smooth. Stir pureed beans and spinach into soup; simmer until hot, about 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
