Serves 4 (serving size: about 1 1/4 cups vegetable mixture and 1 egg)

This easy bowl of brothy goodness is loaded with both veggies and umami depth--it's comfort food you can feel good about. It's also great for times when the food budget is tight, as it costs only about $11 for 4 servings.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high. Add onion and garlic to pan; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add mushrooms to pan; cook 5 to 6 minutes or until browned, stirring occa­sionally. Add tomatoes, stock, salt, and beans to pan, and bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes or until mixture thickens and about half of the liquid has evaporated, stirring occasionally. Add spinach; cook 2 minutes or until wilted, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cover and keep warm.

Step 2

Heat remaining 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Gently break eggs into pan; cook 3 minutes or until whites are set and yolks are still runny. Divide bean mixture among 4 shallow bowls. Top each serving with 1 egg; drizzle with vinegar, and sprinkle with pepper.

Better than expected!

I must have forgot the spinach at the store so I substituted some sliced yellow squash, some snap peas (added toward the end of the mushroom saute).  We used chicken stock.  Added some thinly sliced basil just before serving.  We also had 2 eggs on top of each serving - souper good <get it?>  Will make again!  So easy and like Suzanne said, you can easily customize it according to what you've got on hand.

This rating is for the soup with out the egg (we had already had eggs that morning) and with a few changes. I made the soup as written with the following changes: I used canned tomatoes (not the season for fresh) and added some carrots and green beans to use them up. I also added a few dashes of pepper sauce.  The addition of the cider vinegar was perfect. This was great cool weather fare and could be customized in many ways. Very good!
