White Bean Soup
This is a really easy, hearty soup that is good with either chicken or sausage. To make: in a large pot heat 2 tsp olive oil over medium heat. Add meat of your choice and saute for about 2 minutes. Add 1 cup chopped onion, 3/4 cup chopped celery, 3/4 cup chopped carrot, and 2 cloves garlic. Saute for about 2 minutes. Add 1 cup water, 2 can cannellini beans, 2 bay leaves and 1 can (15 oz) chicken broth. Bring soup to a boil and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes. This is about 1 block per cup if you measure out your protein. Post thoughts to comments.
