Tuscan Spinach and Bean Soup
Recipe type: Soup
  • 1 medium onion
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic
  • 6 strips of bacon (Center Cut Bacon only has 20 calories per strip)
  • 1 can of fat-free chicken stock
  • 1 can low-fat or fat free cream of celery soup
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (Italian flavored)
  • 2 cans cannelini beans (white kidney)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 2 cups baby spinach (not frozen)
  1. Sautee onion and garlic for about 2-3 minutes in a little olive oil. Then add chicken stock, cream of celery, diced tomatoes, beans, salt, pepper, and any extra Italian seasoning of your choice (basic, oregano.) Bring to a boil then simmer for about 20 minutes on low. Meanwhile, cook the bacon strips (microwave or frying pan) and tear into pieces. Add to the soup and simmer for a bit longer. Right before serving, add the spinach and simmer until it's wilted into the soup. Serve.
