Spinach Soup

dsc_0458

There are multiple ways to eat spinach but few match the warm spinach soup on a cold day. Bangalore has an enviable chilly weather now which is just perfect to make yourself a soup irrespective of the time of day. Take a large bowl of this spinach soup with some bread for lunch or dinner.

I don’t have very happy memories of spinach because I was mildly anaemic for a brief period during my teenage years. My over cautious mom fed me so much spinach that I was sure I had green blood. 

This recipe works well for two medium bowls of soup and can be easily doubled or halved. 

If you are a soup person like I am then you are at the perfect place. If there are any recipes I have as many as bread recipes, are soup recipes. Click here for some easy and fun soups. Any vegetable that is overstaying it’s welcome in your refrigerator, I have a soup for it!
