  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 2 Leeks, white part only, sliced thin
  • 4 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 2 Carrots, diced
  • 3 stalks Celery, diced
  • 3 cups chopped Cabbage
  • 2 Zucchini, diced
  • 6 regular mushrooms, sliced or chopped
  • 1 pkg frozen chopped spinach, defrosted and squeezed dry
  • 10 c. water (or low sodium veggie stock)
  • dried Basil, Oregano and Rosemary to taste (start with 1 tsp or 2 or each)
  • ½ t. Black Pepper, or more to taste
  • 1 large can crushed or diced tomatoes
  • 2 cans red kidney beans or your favourite bean
  1. Water saute the onion, leeks and garlic until the onion is soft.
  2. Add the carrots, celery and cabbage and cook until tender.
  3. Add the water or stock, zucchini, mushrooms and all the remaining ingredients.
  4. Bring to a low boil then simmer until everything is cooked through and tender.
  5. Add more italian herbs or garlic or onion powder to adjust the flavour due to lack of salt.
Make a lovely Tuscan-inspired white bean soup by omitting the tomatoes and using white beans instead!
