Directions

  1. Soak beans in enough cold water to cover for 12 hours; drain well.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine soaked beans and 3-1/2 cups fresh water; bring to a boil. Add whole tomatoes, onion, garlic, paprika, salt and bay leaf. Cover and cook over low heat 1-1/4 hours.
  3. Rinse spinach well to remove any dirt or sand; place damp spinach in a large saucepan. Do NOT add water. Cover and cook 2 minutes. Drain well; chop spinach. Remove onion quarters, tomatoes, garlic and 1 Tablespoon cooked beans from the saucepan. Discard tomato skins. Press mixture through a sieve or puree in a blender or food processor.
  4. Heat oil in a small skillet; add pureed mixture. Cook 2 to 3 minutes; return to soup in the saucepan. Stir in wine and chopped cooked spinach; simmer 10 minutes. Remove bay leaf. Pour into a tureen or serve in individual bowls. Garnish with parsley.
