Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 3 medium leeks, white and light-green parts only, trimmed and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 4 large cloves garlic, sliced lengthwise
  • 2 tsp. dried mustard
  • 6 cups lower-salt chicken broth
  • 8 oz. spinach, trimmed and cut into 1-inch ribbons (about 8 lightly packed cups)

  3. Raise the heat to high, add the chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  4. Add the spinach and beans and cook until the spinach wilts.
