Spinach soup

The fastest, easiest soup I know.  And it makes me feel virtuous and elegant because it looks beautiful in the bowl and has such healthy vegetables.

2-3 T olive oil

1 small yellow onion

2-3 cloves garlic, sliced thinly

4 cups chicken broth (or vegetable broth if you’d rather)

1 15 oz can diced tomatoes (I like the basil flavored ones)

1 pkg cheese fresh or frozen tortellini (smallish package)

1 bag fresh or 1 15 oz bag frozen spinach

Heat the oil.  Lightly brown the onions and garlic. Throw in everything else except spinach, cook for ten minutes, add spinach until wilted or hot and serve. 

Anyone else have a very fast soup with lots of veggies?

  1. Thanks, Barbara! I am definitely going to try this over the weekend.

    I have a yummy minestrone soup recipe, if you’re not averse to sausage. Holler if you’d like it and I’ll send it along!

  2. Sounds really good…I would imagine that if you are so inclined, you could probably add some chicken, too, if you wanted to make it a meat dish. Could probably even use those pre-cooked chicken strips and it wouldn’t take any longer to make. Not as healthy, but if you have meat eaters, they’d probably like it that way.

    I’m picturing some homemade or at least really good tortillas on the side!

    Okay, I’m hungry now.

  3. I am trying this soup for tonights dinner. Also serving with: some garlic toast and nice tossed salad. Yummmmm!
