Spinach and White Bean Soup


I came up with this recipe while doing a detox. I needed something healthy and vitamin packed, gluten free, soy free, and dairy free, and I hadn't been happy with the recipes I'd tried. This one was a winner! This recipe freezes well and can be reheated.

  • 3 cups baby spinach

  • ½ cup chopped carrot

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 shallot, finely chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 cups chicken stock

  • 1 (15 ounce) can white beans, drained

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  1. Combine baby spinach and carrot in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped.

  2. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir shallot and garlic in the hot oil until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in spinach and carrot mixture, chicken stock, white beans, oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer until flavors combine, about 20 minutes.

  3. Remove soup from heat and stir in lemon juice. Puree with an immersion blender until smooth.
