Leek, Potato, and Spinach Stew

Tonight I tried a recipe from the Eating Well website: Leek, Potato, & Spinach Stew.

Or you can deglaze with white wine, as the recipe suggests.

The recipe calls for “new potatoes,” I used baby Yukon golds, which I love!

I stirred in scallions and spinach at the very end. The recipe suggests adding them in at the time you mix in the potatoes, but I think the spinach and scallions would become too mushy for my taste, so I waited until the end.

Cannellini, White Northern, etc., will work. Any kind of bean you like, drained and rinsed. I had White Northern on hand.

How cute are these dishes!? They were a Christmas present from a fave. Smile

This soup was delicious! This is the first time I’ve tried hot Italian turkey sausage! I was a bit nervous as the sausage was browning, as it had a smell I wasn’t sure I would like, but it tasted wonderfully spicy and hot in the soup. I just loved this soup and was raving about it while eating it. Plus it is low-calorie; here are the nurtrition facts, straight off the EatingWell website:
