Savory Bean and Spinach Soup

Now that the weather is getting colder this is one of my all time favorite soup recipes.  I found it in the fitness magazine years ago and I always refer to it on a cold and rainy day!

In a 3 1/2 or 4 quart slow cooker, combine vegetable broth, tomato puree, beans, rice, onion, salt, pepper, garlic and chicken.  Cover, cook on low-heat setting for 5 to 7 hours or on high heat setting for 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours.  Just before serving stir in spinach and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

It even tastes delicious the next day!  You can freeze this soup and take it to work on those cold rainy days!
