1mediumfennel bulb, sliced thin (white part only)
5cupsfat-free chicken broth
1can(15 ounces) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1can(14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
Salt, to taste
3cupschopped fresh spinach
Ideal slow cooker size: 5- to 6-Quart.
In a skillet over medium heat, warm the oil and saute the onions and fennel until softened. (I used my Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System so I was able to sauté the onion and fennel in the same pot as cooking the soup.)
Add onion fennel mixture, broth, beans, diced tomatoes, thyme, salt and pepper, and bay leaf to slow cooker. Cover and cook for 1 to 2 hours on HIGH, or 4 to 5 hours on LOW.
Remove bay leaf and stir in spinach about 10 minutes before serving.
Store unused portions in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
