Zelda's Creamy Spinach & Carrot Soup

Zelda Hopkins


This recipe is one that I think you will love. I fix a little different than most people. I use red pepper to give a little kick. I increased the nutmeg and the orange zest. I love it fixed this way. You try it and let me know. My grandkids love this and you know kids don't like anything.
