White Bean-Spinach Vegetable Soup

White Bean-Spinach Vegetable Soup

Snow Days  are good days for hearty soups to warm you

such as  White Bean-Spinach Vegetable Soup

White Bean-Spinach Vegetable Soup

White Bean-Spinach Vegetable Soup

White Bean-Spinach  Vegetable Soup  is a good  to have on hand in the freezer or a full pint jar setting in the refrigerator with soup ready to heat for a lunch.

I like to have soup available for quick lunches, so when I make soup, I make 8 cups from the recipe.  It is usually very thick with vegetables or the main ingredients. Because it is extra thick, I will add extra 99% fat free natural chicken broth when I reheat 2 cups of White Bean-Spinach Vegetable Soup.

Home cooked White/Navy Beans

Preserving the extra soup

The pictures of the white beans illustrate my home cook and canning. After the kettle of soup has cooked, I put the White Bean-Spinach Vegetable Soup into clean pint jars, seal, let cool to room temperature and set the jars in my refrigerator.  It helps to have an extra refrigerator on hand. These jars of soups are usually used in 2 weeks or less. If frozen in freezer bags or plastic freezer containers,  the soups could be kept longer.

Benefits of eating White Bean-Spinach Vegetable Soup

The choice of vegetables can vary with your likes or preferences.  This is an excellent way to meet the dietary requirements of 5-13 servings of vegetables and fruits each day.  Although fruit does not go in the soup, you have snacks and dessert with your meal.  The beans provide fiber and protein, carrots provide vitamin A, peppers contain vitamin C, potatoes are high in potassium and spinach if rich in folate.

 Gourmet Spinach-Romaine Lettuce Salad

My first “gourmet salad”, Spinach-Romaine Lettuce Salad, big time and new idea in 1978.  Bon Appétit was probably the originator of this recipe.  At that time mixing fresh mushrooms and oranges in salad was being original.  How times have changed!  No longer do we expect  the same foods being served together.  An example:  meat loaf made with ground beef, served with white mashed potatoes, gravy and green beans with iceberg lettuce salad. Consider a new take on the same menu:  meat loaf made with ground turkey, risotto , Brussels sprouts with pearl onions and sesame seeds and pear salad.

Diversity of our neighborhoods and communities have made diversity in the foods we eat and have available at our grocers and Farmer’s Market.  In my city  there are multiple Asian and Hispanic grocery stores  in addition to the chain and big box stores that offer a variety of foods to meet the needs of most nationalities and for those just wanting to learn new recipes and tastes to broaden our understanding of flavors, cooking, and even cultures.

This recipe is not exotic nor in 2015 is it very ”gourmet” or different.  It is a salad that is great in the winter time with the oranges and the current fad of bacon on everything.  This is just a reminder of ingredients with a different mix,  ago-to recipe to add to your collection. Enjoy.
