And here is my tasty bowl!
It really was much better than I expected. I didn't have high hopes knowing how much broccoli and spinach are in the recipe. I like broccoli and spinach just fine. Less than some veggies, much more than others. But I haven't generally been a fan of soups that are all-veggie-all-the-time. This may have changed my mind. Also, I've never purchased or cooked with leeks which are required in this recipe. So that was a new experience.
I consider myself a fairly experienced and adventurous cook, but as I've looked over the 10 soups, I'm amazed by how many new things I'll be trying and learning. So, along with a full belly... my brain is getting bigger too!
