Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Sauté leeks and garlic for 5-7 minutes, until softened and beginning to brown. Add onions, turnips, parsnips and potatoes and fry for 2 minutes.

Add wine to deglaze the pan, then add 2 C vegetable broth, beans and basil. Season to taste, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat, loosely cover, and simmer for about 20 minutes, until vegetables are cooked and tender.

Mix tomato paste into the stew, adding more broth if needed to get a nice thick consistency. Add spinach to the pot and cook until spinach wilts but is still a vibrant green.

Adjust seasonings to taste and serve.
