I love making soup on either cold rainy days or during snowstorms. Since it's currently snowing, I decided to make spinach apple soup.
1 bag (9 oz) of spinach, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can rinsed garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
5+ cloves of garlic, chopped
2 medium Fuji or any other type of apple, chopped
1 can (14 oz) of low sodium chicken stock or you own
14 oz water
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt to taste
Lemon juice to taste
1 teaspoon of black pepper
Extras: shredded chicken, parmesan cheese, and 2 teaspoons of Vietnamese beef pho stock or 1 teaspoon of sugar.
Medium heat, saute garlic until golden then add onions, apples, and garbanzo beans. Add a pinch or two of salt and cook until softened. Add spinach and saute until wilted. Add chicken stock and water. Bring to boil and then simmer for 7-10 minutes. Take off stove. Add lemon juice. May add pho stock now. After it has cooled off for 10 minutes, puree using immersion or upright blender. Serve with shredded chicken, parmesan.
