4 cups roughly chopped cabbage

2 cups carrots, cut into coins

1 cup chopped onion

One 14.5-oz. can fire-roasted diced tomatoes (not drained)

1 tbsp. chopped garlic

1 tsp. dried oregano

1/4 tsp. ground thyme

2 bay leaves

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

1/4 tsp. salt, or more to taste

6 cups vegetable broth

4 cups spinach

1 cup frozen cut green beans

Place all ingredients except spinach and green beans in a large pot. Mix well. Bring to a boil.

Reduce to a simmer. Stirring occasionally, cover and cook for 30 minutes, or until veggies are tender.

Remove and discard bay leaves. Stir in spinach and green beans. Stirring occasionally, cook until spinach has wilted and green beans are hot, about 5 minutes.
