Lucky for my the hubs is a soup fan too so there will be plenty of soup making for the next few months over here! If you have some gluten free/vegetarian recipes I need to try, please send them my way! So today’s soup is pretty simple but still so delish! πŸ™‚ Bonus it’s budget friendly with only a few ingredients needed. #winwin

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 6 cups chicken broth (I used vegetable)

  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

  • 1 cup ditalini or other small pasta (I used gluten free penee)

  • 1 (10 ounce) bag baby spinach, rinsed and dried

  • salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large stockpot over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and onions; cook and stir until the onions are transparent, 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Add the broth, increase the heat to high, and bring the mixture to a boil.
  3. Stir in the beans and pasta; lower heat to medium, and simmer, uncovered, until the pasta is al dente, or 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Add the spinach and stir just until wilted.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

So anyone who is gluten free knows that sometimes you just really want some bread and if you eat it you totally pay for it later, womp. So I was so excited when I found these at Caputo’s yesterday!!!

I can’t even tell you the last time I had a breadstick! Hooray! I was a little questionable when I opened them and out them on the cooking sheet but they turned out so good!Β Please ignore my dirty oven. Yikes!

So I really thought they were delish, the hubs on the other hand said “If it doesn’t look like bread, feel like bread or taste like bread. It’s not bread!” We’re a gluten free household what can I say, I do the best I can haha.

Try them and let me know what you think or feel free to suggest some other gluten free items that the hubs might be a bigger fan of. I think for people that rarely eat bread. our threshold for “breadlike” items is a little tanted. The hubs eats gluten and meat outside the house so he’s a harsher critic.

30 Days of Thanks: Day 17

There are so many things about the hubs that I am thankful for. Today I am thankful that he (mostly) enjoys and goes along with us having a gluten/dairy (mostly)/meat free household. We had very different dietary upbringings but he knew what he was getting into when we got married and never buts up a stink about it. I am not trying to change the person he is but just want him to be mindful of what he is putting into his body and at least for two meals a day, I can have the final say. πŸ™‚ I think if you ask him he will say he feels pretty good eating the way we do and even says I’ve never made anything he doesn’t like. #winning #imaluckylady #thankful

As always thanks for stopping by! Share your soup recipes below, I would love to try them out! Yum!

Stay warm my loves! xoxo,

Madelyn
