This fresh-tasting spinach soup is wonderfully nutritious. Its bright green color is a result of adding half the fresh spinach just before blending. Enjoy this delicious soup with crusty whole grain bread.

Add remaining spinach and blend (if working in two batches, use half the remaining spinach with each batch). Blend until smooth.
