Easy White Bean Soup
So you guys may know from previous posts that I love smoothies, so naturally I also love the savory cousin of smoothies…soup! Throw everything in a pot, taste, adjust as needed, serve. There’s really no messing up. This Easy White Bean Soup has roasted garlic (i.e. the best flavor known to mankind), creamy white beans, and a handful of spinach (for the health of it!). It would be perfect with these homemade Olive Garden bread sticks!
The tulip-man and I are currently on a diet that cuts out grains, dairy, sweets, and meats. And I’ve got to say, some of these food cravings get pretty intense! But you know what? This soup fixes them all. It’s creamy, hearty, and soul-warming, and I can’t wait to serve it up to my family and friends this holiday season.

So here’s how we do this. First we’ll roast some garlic, making our homes smell like an Italian grandmother’s kitchen, and laying the foundation for a darned tasty soup. When that’s done we’ll lay the second foundation, sautéed onion and celery. Cook them a bit, add the beans, broth, milk, pepper, and garlic, then cook. Spoon out a bit of the veggie, blend the rest (we want there to be some chewy bits!), then add the veggies back in. Throw in fresh spinach, let it wilt down, and voila! delicious, healthy, way easy white bean soup.
