Garlicky Spinach and White Bean Soup

Recipe by EmilyStrikesAgain

From the Chicago Tribune: "Given its high water content and satiety value, eating an entree of soup is a good way to control your diet, and it can help you work in lots of vegetables. In this recipe, the beans provide plenty of fiber, a key to weight management."

I left out the celery and rosemary (I don't like them) but otherwise followed the directions exactly. The soup thickened up nicely during the simmer time. I think next time I'll add 4 cloves of garlic.... I just enjoyed a bowl for lunch with a few pretzels on the side. Overall, a VERY good soup with packed with great nutrition. Thanks so much for sharing.
