Spinach Tomato Soup

This is one of the easiest tomato soup recipes. All you have to do is add the ingredients to a soup pot and cook.  The added spinach adds alot of nutrition and makes this soup more interesting than traditional tomato soup.  I like to keep the spinach leaves whole, but you can chop them before adding to the soup if you prefer. I also add cream at the end to make it extra creamy. If you are watching your calories, you can easily leave this ingredient out. I usually make this soup in the crock pot. I just add all the ingredients to the crock pot, and turn on high. Its done in 2-3 hours. Just add the cream about 15 minutes before serving, and turn the heat to warm until you are ready to serve.  I served this delicious tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches made under the broiler in the oven. I find that using the broiler to make all the grilled cheese sandwiches at one time is so much easier, and saves lots of time. I used french bread and Havarti cheese for these cute little sandwiches. It was a fun twist to use french bread for the sandwiches. These little sandwiches would also be a perfect appetizer for a party.  You could do them in different cheeses to make a platter.

    Superb soup Angie. Grilled cheese and home made tomato soup, best childhood meal ever! The spinach is a nice “grown up” addition although as a kid I ate all kinds of greens so it would have been just fine with me. My boys, no spinach for them unless it was raw. they couldn’t handle the texture!!

    Thanks very much for that! My mum recently harvested her garden full of tomatoes , and I found myself the proud owner of two or four buckets worth! Of course I couldnt eat them all, but I did find a website full of tons more tomato recipes there. A website dedicated the topic!! Crazy what you can find on the internets these days!!
