    Grand supper soup with chicken and spinach

    Makes 6 cups

    2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

    3 thin carrots

    1/2 (10-oz/300-g) bag fresh baby or regular spinach, about 3-1/2 cups (875 mL)

    1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil

    2 minced garlic cloves

    1 tbsp (15 mL) minced or 2 to 3 thin slices fresh ginger

    2 (10-oz/284-mL) cans chicken broth, preferably lower salt, diluted with only 1 can water

    1/4 tsp (1 mL) freshly ground coarse black pepper or 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) cayenne pepper

    19-oz (541-mL) can Romano or kidney beans or 2 cups (500 mL) cooked beans, drained and rinsed (optional)

    Slice chicken into bite-size strips. Peel carrots, then cut into 1/3-inch (1-cm) slices. Wash spinach. Leave baby spinach leaves whole. If using regular spinach, tear leaves into large pieces.

    Heat oil in a large wide saucepan set over medium-high heat. Add garlic and ginger and cook 1 minute. Add chicken strips and stir frequently until pink colour is gone, from 2 to 3 minutes. Add carrots, undiluted broth and water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Then cover and reduce heat so soup simmers until carrots are tender, about 20 minutes.

    Just before serving, stir in spinach and pepper and, for extra interest, rinsed beans. Serve with crusty bread and robust red wine.

    Make ahead

    At the end of Step 2, after carrots are tender, stir in pepper. Cover and refrigerate up to 1 day.
    Add spinach after reheating.
