Tuscan Chicken Spinach Soup With Roasted Peppers #SundaySupper

Tuscan Chicken bean soup-8826

Tuscan soup with wholesome beans, chicken chunks, fresh spinach and roasted red peppers makes a hearty warm meal! My Sunday Supper team turns two today and we are all making a Sunday Supper recipe in celebration.  I decided to make my Tuscan soup which I made for my very first Sunday Supper post which also happens to be the day Sunday Supper made its debut!  Special day indeed! When I started blogging, I was not traditionally a food blogger but more a health/nutrition blogger spinning off nutrition posts with some smoothie recipes etc. Then I met the fabulous Isabel aka family foodie  who she sent me an invite to her food tribe and encouraged me to try out more healthy recipes. I remember the first Sunday supper and all the 9 of us nervously putting forth our recipes :) ! Now Sunday supper has become a household name,   sensation, trending almost every Sunday on twitter! I am proud and honored to be part of this team of fabulous food bloggers who have taught me so much about creating amazing recipes and capturing them for eternity via blogging.  I would never have blossomed into a creative healthy food blogger if not for them. I still post health and nutrition pieces on my blog, but my I know of some of my most creative moments have been when I worked with a theme and created a Sunday Supper recipe. You can check them out here! Ok back to my post, I revamped the recipe a tad by adding some roasted red peppers and I used chicken thighs to get a rich natural stock and the end result was super delicious. I like this version better than my older version. Pair it with some crusty bread, salad and you have a satisfying, nourishing meal.

Nutrition Wise!

Chicken is a good source of lean protein, iron, zinc and B12. Beans offer powerful antioxidant protection and a boost of fiber. Spinach is loaded with vitamin A, C and other good stuff.  Add some healthy immune boosting fat  via coconut oil and you a nutrition powerhouse in a soup!
