  • 2

    tablespoons of olive oil

  • 4

    leeks, chopped

  • 2

    garlic cloves

  • 2

  • 1/2

    cup whole wheat couscous

  • 2-3

    cups fresh spinach leaves

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 4-6

    cups of water, depending on how thick you want the soup, if using dry beans you will need more water as dry beans will absorb the liquid

Directions

Heat oil in 6qt dutch oven or large pot over medium high heat. Add leeks, garlic and saute for 2-4 minutes. Add cumin and paprika and stir. Add bay leaves, beans and water. Bring the mixture to a boil and reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes (if using dry beans you will need about 1 hour at least, sometimes more) Add couscous and cook for another 3-5 minutes.
