Creamy Spring Greens Soup
This wonderful Creamy Spring Greens Soup is a simple and delicious way to incorporate this nutritious, seasonal vegetable into a dish that everyone will enjoy. Ideal for a light lunch or as an appetizer at a dinner party during St. Patrick’s Day. As I discovered, spring greens are young spring cabbages – light and greenery. They are loads of good nutrition and flavor! This soup proves that healthy can be decadent. Just a few simple ingredients, like in my garlic soup, produce a creamy pureed soup bursting with flavor. It’s also satisfyingly creamy but surprisingly light.
This spring greens soup is loaded with fresh greens and herbs and is sure to give you a boost of energy, just what you need to get through these dreary cold days. After a long winter of heavier foods, the abundance of leafy greens and herbs in the spring helps us alkalize, detox, and lose some extra pounds. Greens can be incorporated into a variety of dishes. Soup is nourishing, simple-to-prepare, and delectable.
