First of all I love soups. Any time of the day. Secondly, it sometimes happens that you buy a vegetable in a big size bag and only need to use a handful of it in your dish. Fresh spinach is one of these veggies. It deteriorates quickly and is often not so fresh anymore after two days in your fridge. So putting it in a soup is a delicious quick and simple way of using the remainder of it.
