Things You’ll Need

  • 2 tbs olive oil, plus extra for drizzling

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 1 large celery stalk, diced

  • 1 carrot, diced

  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 2 sprigs of rosemary

  • 2 cans of cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

  • Parmigiano-Reggiano rind (or parmesan), optional

  • 3 1/2-4 cups low sodium chicken stock

  • 1 tbs red wine vinegar, or more to taste

  • 2 large handfuls spinach

  • 1 large heavy bottomed pot

  • Cheese grater

  • Parmigiano-Reggiano (or parmesan) cheese, for garnish

Step 1

Add 2 tbs of olive oil to a large pot set over medium heat. Once warmed, add the onions, celery, carrots, a pinch of salt, and a crack of pepper. Sauté everything until softened, but not browned; about 5 minutes.

Step 2

Add the minced garlic and sauté everything for 2 more minutes. Add 3 1/2 cups of stock, beans, rosemary, and parmigiano rind (if using), and adjust the heat so that the soup comes to a gentle simmer.

Adding stock


If you want a soup that has a little more broth to it, simply add the remaining 1/2 cup of stock during this step.

Step 3

Allow the soup to simmer for about 10 minutes. Add the red wine vinegar and season soup to taste with salt and pepper. Reduce the heat slightly, then add the spinach and cook until wilted.

Step 4
