Florentine-style dishes have one thing in common: heart-healthy spinach. In this case, the leafy greens combine with chunks of ham in a chowderlike soup. For best results, remove spinach stems before cooking.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced carrot
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup chopped green sweet pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 teaspoon instant chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 8 ounces fully cooked ham, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped fresh spinach

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the 1 1/2 cups water, the carrot, onion, green sweet pepper, celery, bouillon granules and pepper. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Don't drain.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in flour. Add milk and the 1 cup water. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more.
  3. Add the vegetable mixture and ham to the milk mixture. Heat through. Stir in the spinach. Serve immediately.
