Faster but Slightly Less Fresh

I hear from a lot of my friends how challenging they think it would be to eat vegan, or even just to eat healthy. It does take a certain amount of planning to eat good and good for you food everyday, but it doesn’t always mean buying a bunch of ingredients and putting something together from scratch.

I am a huge fan of leftovers; some dishes I can eat for 3 days straight and never get sick of, but sometimes I like to adjust and edit my previous night’s dinner to fashion something new and delicious. Like this meal: not quite enough leftovers of tomato and white bean soup became a tomato bread soup with spinach. In the spirit of Marie Simmons, I wanted to make something fast and (slightly less) fresh. Five minutes made this an entirely different, and entirely delicious dinner!

1 cup cubed bread, toasted
1 cup baby spinach, loosely packed

Heat the Tomato and White Bean Soup. Add the spinach and stir until wilted. Spoon over the toasted bread cubes., and top with spinach pesto. Serve immediately!
