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

Wash produce before use


Prep the soup ingredients

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1½ cups [2 cups].
  • Rinse the kidney beans and lentils and add to a medium bowl.
  • Rinse the white beans. Add half to the bowl with the kidney beans and lentils. In a small bowl, using a fork, gently mash the remaining white beans.
  • Divide the spaghetti into two equal portions; save half for another use.


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, add the spaghetti, reduce to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the spaghetti is just tender, 8 to 9 minutes.
While the soup simmers, prepare the mint yogurt.


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.


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.


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