Chicken and Soybean Stew
Ingredients 1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large onion chopped
12 ounces chicken sausage, thawed and casings removed
*1 tablespoon tomato paste
½ cup flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
¼ cup cilantro, roughly chopped, optional
2 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth

Instructions Heat the oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the sausage and cook, crumbling it with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 8 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Stir in the parsley and cilantro and cook for 1 minute more. Add the broth and soybeans and bring to a boil. Add the frozen spinach and simmer, partially covered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally with a fork to separate the leaves. Stir in ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
