Spinach & Tomato Soup

I love soups, but it has to be made the way I like it which is flavorful for sure.   I grew up drinking this tomato based spinach soup.  This Spinach & Tomato Soup is my Mom’s recipe and has been liked by everyone.

DSC_3485It is such an easy and quick recipe when you are not in a mood to do elaborate cooking.  Love soups specially in the winters and also for Navratri when we are fasting as it doesn’t have any onion and garlic.


This Spinach & Tomato Soup is not very thick in consistency so it is not heavy on the stomach.  It is very nutritious with all sorts of vitamins as we all know spinach is a good source of iron.  Lovely flavors of ginger and cumin.   Do give it a try if you like spinach and tomatoes.  You won’t be disappointed..And don’t forget to give your feedback..
