Lentil Stew With Spinach and Potatoes

I am trying to expand my vegetarian repertoire. I found this one while searching for vegetarian main courses on Epicurious. We really like lentils, and they are a great source of protein. I didn't have vegetable broth, so I substituted chicken Better than Boullion - otherwise I followed the recipe. This was pretty good, a very hearty stew for being meatless. I thought it was a little too minty - mint was definitely the dominant flavor, and I would have liked to taste the lentils a little bit more. I will probably make this again sometime when I feel like I need some protein but don't want meat.

The spinach always turns brown and yucky for me after I cook it (I mean, the leftovers). Any ideas? I'm thinking of cooking the stew, and then when I'm ready to serve, putting some spinach in the bottom of the bowl and putting stew on top of it, so that I don't "cook" too much spinach.
