  • 4 cups chicken broth

  • 1 bunch spinach, stems removed and torn

    Sarah,
    First of all thank you so much for your videos. I have learned so much from you. Love you and the videos. This soup was amazing. I love it and my family loves it as well. My husband asked me to make it often. It was so simple and easy. I have to say I was skeptical at first but all the ingredients just came together and it was absolutely delicious. I will make it often because it certainly has a lot of healthy vegetables and it is one of the most quickest soups I have ever made
