Hearty greens and beans soup


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 medium carrot, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 (3/4 pound) head escarole, cleaned and chopped
1 (32‑ounce) container low-sodium chicken broth
2 (15 1/2‑ounce) cans no-salt-added cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14.5‑ounce) can no-salt-added fire-roasted tomatoes
1 cup water
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated


Heat oil in a large nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrot, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are very tender, about 8 minutes.

Add escarole, broth, beans, tomatoes, and water; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the escarole is tender and the flavors are blended, about 15 minutes. Stir in the cheese. Serve at once.
