Scale

Ingredients

  • 12 tablespoons olive oil
  • 23 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 medium onion, peeled & diced small
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning (I love McCormick’s)
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 medium celery stalks, chopped (~1 cup)
  • 2 medium carrot, chopped (~2/3 – 1 cup)
  • 2 large handfuls baby spinach, stems removed
  • 1 15-oz. can cannellini beans, drained & rinsed
  • 23 cooked Italian chicken sausages, sliced (can also omit or sub your favorite vegetarian sausages)
  • 1/3 cup 2% or whole milk (can also sub soy milk)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • For garnish: freshly shaved parmesan cheese & freshly chopped basil

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat.
  • Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds – 1 minute (until just fragrant).
  • Add onion, carrots & celery followed by Italian seasoning, salt & pepper. Cover, lower heat to medium-low and cook for ~10 minutes or until veggies are fork tender.
  • Add vegetable stock and tomato sauce then raise heat to high and bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, lower heat and simmer for ~10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add in chicken sausage, then cover and cook for ~5 minutes (until sausage is heated through).
  • Add in spinach, stirring gently until it begins to wilt (~1-2 minutes) then add in beans and milk (a non-dairy option will also work).  Stir to combine.
  • Season once more with salt and pepper, as needed.
  • Ladle into bowls, then top with freshly shredded parmesan and chopped basil.  Serve with crusty bread or crackers.

Notes

  • Soup will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
