Soup #2

Last night I made Soup #2 from the Real Simple magazine collection of 10 simple soups. It was the Creamy Broccoli and Spinach Soup. Here's the magazine image.

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!
