Triple Green Soup 
with Cannellini Beans & Spiced Pepitas

We’ve packed this soup with a triple-punch of greens – kale, Swiss chard and spinach. These greens contain antioxidants that help fight against oxidative stress and may help in the prevention of cancer. We’ve also added a finishing touch of pepitas (also known as pumpkin seeds), toasted with aromatic turmeric and ginger.
