Remember years ago when bagged spinach was yanked from supermarkets. So I went to the next mericle green (kale).Found out that this veggie is loaded with calcium, fiber and reserch shows it can help protect against certain cancers. I never knew that.Well since then,spinach is back on the shelves again.So I tested this soup by using spinach one time and kale the next. Both are very good.Woody and I made a batch during the cold season.Really warmed us up. Hope you all try it and like it.
