it was just soup night tonight, because i took a mental health day off from work and i don’t want to waste one precious second of not-being-at-work time (because i cannot stand being at work anymore – it’s a long story). so i was pretty surprised to start this lovely soup and 15 minutes later, it was pretty much done. all this in between rounds of Cafe World on facebook and what an easygoing dinner.
Chicken and Spinach Soup
recipe adapted from Delish.com
Note: in the original recipe there is a basil pesto that is supposed to be included in this soup – i had basil, but it was all wilty and gross so i left it out. i do think though, that this would be even more fantastic with it. take a look at the link up there for the original recipe.
boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into cubes
baby spinach, coarsely chopped
1 can cannellini beans
heat the oil in a soup pot. salt and pepper the chicken. add the chicken pieces, onion and carrots. cook until the chicken is lightly browned. add in the garlic. cook for a minute. stir in the chicken stock, marjoram, spinach and cannellini beans. let this all cook together on medium for a few minutes. serve with a little grated parmesan and some crispy bread.
