Lemony White Bean and Carrot Spinach Salad

Ingredients
1 1/2
cups dry Great Northern beans
5
medium carrots, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1
medium onion, halved and thinly sliced (1 cup)
2
1/2
teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon ground black pepper
4 1/2
cups no-salt-added chicken stock
1
5 ounce package fresh baby spinach
3
tablespoons lemon juice
1
medium avocado, halved, seeded, peeled, and chopped
3/4
cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese (3 ounces)
1/3
cup pistachio nuts, coarsely chopped
 
Lemon wedges (optional)

Directions

  1. Rinse beans; drain. In a 4- to 5-quart Dutch oven combine beans and enough water to cover beans by 2 inches. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 1 hour. Rinse and drain beans.
  2. In a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine the soaked beans, carrots, onion, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Pour stock over mixture in cooker.
  3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 7 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 1/2 to 4 hours. If desired, remove 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid; set aside. Drain bean mixture; discard any remaining cooking liquid. Return bean mixture to the hot cooker. Stir in spinach, lemon peel, and lemon juice. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer bean mixture to a serving platter. Top with avocado, cheese, and pistachios. If desired, drizzle with enough of the reserved cooking liquid to moisten. If desired, serve with lemon wedges. Makes 6 servings.
