Creamy Green Spinach Soup

Creamy Green Spinach Soup | Well and Full | #vegan #recipe

It’s March 6th, two days after season four of House of Cards premiered on Netflix, and I’m halfway through the season already. I love/hate the fact that they release the entire season at once – love, because there’s no waiting for the next episode; hate, because it means a frantic binge-watch until all of the episodes have been seen. And the thing is, I’m not a huge TV-watcher… I don’t even have a TV in my apartment (seriously). But House of Cards is just so riveting! I think it’s because it’s so believable… pretty much no one is a fan of the US Government nowadays, and it’s easy to believe that they’re all scheming, manipulative politicians as portrayed on HOC. Power plays, backhanded deals, lies, schemes… it’s kind of scary that this is reality. But enough about politics… let’s talk about SPRING!

The weather is getting incrementally warmer here in CT, and I’m sooo ready for the farm stands to open again. My body has been craving fresh fruits and veggies like crazy, and I’ve been starting to see smatterings of local produce in Whole Foods again. But what I’m really looking forward to are the open-air farmers markets, bursting with fresh produce and heaps and heaps of succulent greens. I just love fresh greens. In fact, at the farm stand in my hometown, their kale and lettuce garden is right in the backyard, and when you ask for a head of kale they go out and cut one for you, straight from the ground! Talk about fresh, living food! AHH all this talk of spring has me so excited!! But tell me, what are YOUR favorite things about spring?

This creamy green spinach soup is a perfect segway between chilly spring nights and warm sunny days. Fresh but still warming, it’s a perfectly balanced dish for this time of year. I hope you all love it!

    I haven’t seen the newest season of House of Cards yet but I’m scared I’ll have to binge watch it if I begin. I’m in the process of doing that with Downton Abbey! I love how green this soup is! And that little bit of dill on top is just so cute. Perfect for ringing in spring! <3

    1. Sarah Avatar

      I binge-watched the first season of Downton Abbey, it was so good! But House of Cards is my guilty pleasure now ;)

    Ha I’m almost halfway through the new season of House of Cards too! This series is so addictive! But I know what you mean. I love and hate it at the same time. I’ll be gone for a couple weeks so I have to stop the binge-watching now and wait til I get back to watch the end…Argh! This soup sounds delicious. I love how it’s a perfect transition meal between the two seasons. <3

    1. Sarah Avatar

      It is totally addicting!! I’m glad I’m not the only one who is watching the whole season!! ;)
