Ingredients

    2 Cups white beans, soaked overnight
    A couple glugs of olive oil
    2 onions
    2.2 Lbs Spinach
    2 cloves of garlic
    1 tbs. sugar
    1 tbs. tomato paste
    8 peeled and chopped tomatoes (or a can of crushed tomatoes)
    tsp. cumin
    paprika, salt, pepper
    Tabasco sauce

Directions

Makes about 6 entree servings
1. Soak 2 cups of white beans in cold water at least overnight.
2. cook the beans in water, WITHOUT salt, until soft, about 2 hours
3. In another big pan, saute 2 onions in olive oil until transparent. Add about a kilo (2 lbs.) of washed fresh spinach and cook until the spinach wilts.
4. Add to the spinach
two chopped cloves of garlic,
a tablespoon of tomato paste (if you have any)
salt, pepper,
a tablespoon of sugar,
a teaspoon cumin
a bit of paprika
and about 8 peeled and chopped tomatoes and cook for another minute or two.
5. drain the beans and add to the tomato-spinach mixture
6. Add however much water you'd like (depending on how thick you'd like the soup to be) and cook for another 20 minutes or so.

The soup is best the next day when you reheat it. A bit of Tabasco sauce does wonders. Serve with bread on a cold day!

  • I used 8 cups of homemade vegetable stock, no salt, sugar or additives, and I threw the onion straight into the broth and beans. I skipped the tomato paste and sugar too. 5 star soup! We call this "Bean Florentine Soup". Heart healthy also.
