On my husband’s side of the family they have Age Related Macular Degeneration, the leading cause of blindness. So I’m always trying to get green leafy veggies in my family’s diet any way I can. Eating these foods most days of the week is important for prevention of ARMD.
The only problem… they’re not big fans of green leafies that are readily available, prewashed and convenient – like spinach.
So here was my solution this week–which was well received and gone in a day! I should have made more.
Everyone ate it and no one added salt. It was a very thin soup. You could add corn starch to thicken it if you like. No one is a big fan of spinach at our house, but they all enjoyed this soup… and I’m happy to protect my family’s vision!
