Tuscan Vegetable Soup — Meatless Monday

Start the New Year off on a warm, healthy note by making a bowl of Ellie’s veggie soup. Loaded with colorful carrots, zucchini and celery, vitamin-packed spinach and fresh herbs, this bowl gets its thick and creamy consistency from mashed cannellini beans and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese before serving.

Bake up a batch of Food Network Magazine’s Almost-Famous Breadsticks, topped with a dusting of garlic powder and dried oregano, to dunk into Ellie’s easy soup, ready in just 35 minutes.
