Ingredients

1
yellow onion, diced
2
celery ribs, sliced
2
carrots, peeled and diced
3
garlic cloves, minced
2 cups
shredded cooked chicken
2
15-oz cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
8 cups
chicken broth
1
Parmesan cheese rind
1
bay leaf
2 cups
chopped baby spinach
1 tbsp
chopped fresh dill
1
lemon, juice
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

In a large pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, celery, and carrot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to soften, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until it is fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the chicken, beans, broth, Parmesan rind, and bay leaf. Bring the soup to a boil and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook, covered, until the vegetables are tender and the flavours intensify, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Once the soup has simmered, remove the Parmesan rind and bay leaf and discard them. Stir in the spinach, dill, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
