High Fiber Tuscan Chicken, Bean and Spinach Soup #SundaySupper


Today I am participating in a progressive dinner hosted by My Foodie Tribe ‘Around the Family Table’ What is a progressive dinner party? you might be asking. It is a party where each successive course is eaten at a different host’s house- the guests progress from house to house. Hence, the name progressive dinner party.I wish you could really do that since all of these recipes are so delish. You can however, hop to the other blogs and check out the other menu items on this progressive dinner if you wish. I am providing the soup for this dinner.
I saw this recipe in a Cooking Light Magazine and was struck by the sheer simplicity , wholesome  yet rich quality of this soup. Packed with flavor and healthy Nutrition Bytes it ‘s a sheer win for a family dinner. Eileen, @WineEveryday on twitter, has recommended I pair this with a 2010 Rooster Hill Vineyards Medium Sweet Riesling  to bring out the pure decadent flavor of the soup.  Add some other entrees and menu items from the progressive dinner menu below and you can dream you are dining on one of those quaint porches under the Tuscan sky. Added Bonus :  This healthy soup has a whopping 9 gms of fiber / serving  courtesy of the beans and Veggies . Not to mention it is low fat and super Delish !
