Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the soup ingredients

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1½ cups [2 cups]. 
  • Rinse the kidney beans and lentils and transfer to a medium bowl.
  • Rinse the white beans and add half to the bowl with the kidney beans and lentils. In a small bowl, using a fork, gently mash the remaining white beans. 
  • Separate the spaghetti so the noodles don’t clump together during cooking. Set aside half for another use. 

2

Start the soup

In a large sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and starting to caramelize, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the Persian spice blend and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. 

Add the bean-lentil mixture, mashed white beans, and 4 cups [5½ cups] water and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until the lentils start to soften, 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in the spaghetti, a few noodles at a time, reduce to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the lentils and spaghetti are just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the mint yogurt. 

3

Make the mint yogurt

  • Strip the mint leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Set aside half for finishing the soup.

In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt and half the mint; season to taste with salt and pepper. 

4

Finish the soup

To the pot with the soup, working in batches if needed, stir in the spinach and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the remaining mint, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the soup to individual bowls and dollop with as much mint yogurt as you like. Serve any remaining yogurt on the side.
