You will thoroughly enjoy this nutrient-dense, easy-to-prepare spinach soup. Blendarising it with low-fat milk gives it a lovely emerald green colour, which together with the aroma of sautéed onions and garlic, makes this soup irresistible! This soup is especially recommended for all the weight-conscious readers. The soup has not been strained in order to retain the fibre of the spinach.
