Spinach isn’t everyone’s favorite vegetable, but when mixed in with leeks, onion and garlic, it becomes a very tasty addition to this soup. I call this a grown-up soup since most kids are probably going to shy away from the green color and the flavor of leeks and onions . . . if not, then great!
This spinach leek soup is actually fairly mild, thanks to the cooking and it is the perfect way to start a meal with your friends. I actually made it for a group of moms that I meet up with to cook lunch once a week and it was a big hit!
