Lima Bean Soup

And the day wouldn't be complete without a delicious bowl of soup.

It's called "Lima Bean, Zucchini, and Spinach Soup" from a cookbook called Seriously Simple.

Some of you may be thinking, "Lima beans. Ew..."

But look at how fast I finished it.

It's tasty.

Lima Bean Soup
2 tbs olive oil
2 leeks, sliced
2 yellow squash, sliced
2 cups frozen lima beans
6 cups water
2 bay leaves
1 tbs parsley
1 tbs oregano
1 tbs salt
2 cups fresh spinach
1 tbs lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

Heat the olive oil in a large stock pot. Add the leeks and saute for a few minutes. Add the squash and saute for a few more minutes. Add the lima beans, water, and herbs. Bring to a boil. Then cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the veggies are soft.

Add the spinach and cover for 2-3 minutes until the spinach is wilted.

Remove from the heat. Add the lemon juice and salt and pepper.

Use your fantastic immersion blender to puree.
