    Ingredients Measures
    Vegetable broth * 56 ounces
    Garlic, minced 2 cloves
    Cannellini beans, drained and rinsed 1 (15 ½-ounce) can
    Diced tomatoes, no salt added 1 (14 ½-ounce) can
    Russet potato, scrubbed and diced 1
    Frozen spinach 1 (10-ounce) package
    Extra virgin olive oil 1/3 cup

    1. Heat broth and garlic in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
