Reset your diet with this soothing soup chock-full of superfoods. You can put this recipe together using the veggies in the bottom of your crisper drawer—pull out those carrots and that neglected bunch of celery—add in onion, and for protein, a can of hearty white beans. Then, the star of the show: a powerful punch of hearty, nutritious greens like kale, chard or spinach. All are easy to find, already washed and ready to go, in your grocer’s produce section. These simple ingredients cook up into a soup that’s much more than the sum of its parts and is still low-cal enough that you can round it out with crusty bread and cheese on the side. MORE+ LESS-

Cover; reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 15 minutes. Stir in baby greens; simmer 4 to 5 minutes or until greens are tender.
