Spinach soup. A flavorsome, bright and creamy soup made with spinach and onion which makes it not only healthy but also delicious.
Spinach soup is very healthy and filling too. It is packed with vitamins K, C, A, B and rich in folate, iron and magnesium.
In order to have a creamy consistency, we could add corn flour, milk or full fat yogurt. I have added cornflour to get a creamy texture.
We grow spinach at home, and whenever it is sunny, we would drink a glass of green juice. California has been having never stopping rain for the past two months. So, we are switching from green juice to spinach soup. For a cold weather, spinach soup is a comfort dish that offers warmth, flavors and nourishment.
You can make a batch of soup and freeze them for two weeks. So, now you have enough reasons to make this healthy and creamy spinach soup.
