I posted a pic of the soup earlier in the week. I was so obsessed with it. Easy to make, filling, tasty and healthy. And if anyone asks - you are getting protein from the beans, brown rice pasta and the spinach!
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 onion, diced
2 stalks celery, finely diced
3 carrots, sliced into coins
1 clove garlic, minced
2 sprigs thyme, destemmed
1 teaspoon oregano
salt and pepper to taste
1 (15 oz) can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 can tomato sauce
4 cups vegetable broth
2 cups water
1.5-2 cups bite size brown rice pasta of choice
Heat a stock pot to medium. Add olive oil, then onion, celery, carrots, salt and pepper and cook 5 minutes until soft.
Add garlic, thyme, oregano, beans, tomato sauce, broth and water and stir.
Turn heat to high and bring liquid to a boil.
Turn heat to medium-high, add pasta and cook 6-8 minutes.
Turn heat to low, mix in spinach, taste for additional salt and pepper, and serve.
