|Spinach Soup, Garnished with Tomatoes|
A tiny preschool girl was sitting on the floor playing, while two of her Mother's "friends" gossiped nearby. One of them gestured to the little girl, and loudly whispered,
"Not very P-R-E-T-T-Y!"
The little girl didn't look up from her playing, but replied, "No, but S-M-A-R-T!"
That's rather like this soup. It's not very pretty, but it IS satsifying, delicious, and packed with nutrition. And compellingly easy to make : )
Here it is:
1 bag (12 oz) Frozen Chopped Spinach
1 Quart Water (4 cups)
1 Cube Vegetable Bouillon
1 teaspoon of your favorite all purpose seasoning blend (I use Mrs. Dash Table Blend)
Bring to a boil, and simmer for about 5 minutes
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
About 1/4 Cup of NonDairy Milk (Optional)
1 Tablespoon Tahini (Optional - Omit if avoiding fat)
Puree with Immersion Blender & Serve
Tip for dining with Omnivores (or for Lacto-Ovo Vegetarians): Grated Parmesan Cheese may be sprinkled over the top.
