Ohhh so simple spinach soup




My kids tend to avoid greens so whenever we have buttered spinach or blanched beans with olive oil n sesame as side dishes,they tend to fuss a lot.But not anymore as we now blend and soup up all these veggies and with a little drizzle of lemon juice,they polish up the soup. A high speed blender is a magical investment..you can whip up delicious pates,dips and soups at the touch of a button......the veggies can go in raw with skins on and the blender just pulverizes them to such a smooth consistency that you d never know that you were eating healthy peels and seeds..........today we made a delicious spinach soup with the blender(vitamix) and it was polished up.......here is the recipe..its too simple!!!!!!
