  • 30 ounces canned whole baby clams with the juice (3 10-ounce cans)
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 32 ounces vegetable broth (I used one without a heavy tomato base)
  • 1/2 of a yellow onion grated
  • 3-6 cloves garlic, grated (depending on their size)
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 2 anchovies
  • juice of two lemons
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/4 - 1 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes, according to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  1. Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a large, heavy bottomed pot. Add the grated onion and cook until translucent. Add the anchovies to the pot and break them up with the back of a wooden spoon. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for 30 seconds. Stir in the white wine
  2. Pour in the broth, then stir in the oregano and bay leaves. Add the clams, along with the clam juice; heat to a simmer. Turn off the heat, stir in the lemon juice and chives, then top with the baby spinach. Cover for about 5 minutes to let the spinach wilt. Serve hot.
