Flavor packed soup that warms the tummy and satisfies the taste buds.


Ingredients

  • 3 Large Leeks
  • 3-4 cups Baby Spinach
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 tsp salt (I use Pink Himalayan or Real Salt)
  • 3-4 cups Broth (I used homemade beef 3 cups plus 1-2 cups of water)
  • 1 TB Coconut Oil or Grass-fed Butter
  • 2 TB of Olive Oil
  • Optional garnishes: Parsley, Yogurt spice blend(Parsley, Oregano, Marjoram and Salt)

Directions

  1. Rinse and slice Leeks
  2. Melt Butter & Oil in stock pot, add in Leeks.
  3. Lightly saute while chopping up Spinach and Garlic
  4. Add Spinach, Garlic and Salt – continue to saute about 3-4 min
  5. Add broth, bring to boil then simmer for approximately 30-40 minutes
  6. Serve as is or garish individual servings with spices of choice or plain yogurt with spices.
  7. TIPS – I purchase big containers of fresh baby spinach and put the container directly in the freezer. The spinach freezes without sticking together and is very easy to crumble when I am ready to use it.
