How to make it

- Put beans back in pot and add 12 cups fresh water, the unchopped onion half, whole celery stalk, and parsley. Bring up to a simmer and cook for about 2 hours, until beans are tender. Remove vegetables and discard.
- While beans are cooking, sauté onions, carrots and celery in olive oil until celery and onions are translucent but not brown. Add garlic and red pepper and sauté for 2 more minutes.
- Add these vegetables to bean mixture along with chicken base. Simmer for about 30 minutes, then add chopped turkey and spinach. Heat through, correct seasonings with salt and pepper and serve hot.
