I love spinach either in soups, pasta or even inside empanadas, but it usually isn’t a kid favorite! Even so, it’s a good idea to try to show them this great vegetable while still young. One of the best ways to enjoy this new food is as a soup. This hot meal with broccoli and spinach is perfecta for winter or a rainy day. The recipe is easy to pre-pare and uses basic ingredients: onion, garlic, cumin, spinach, broccoli and chicken broth. Even vegetable broth can be used for a vegetarian version. When I make this soup at home, I serve it with grated cheese sprinkled on top. MORE + LESS -
