This is the favorite soup of my boyfriend. He loves it when I’m making him this as a treat. Especially when he comes home late from work. I never was a big soup lover until I tasted something similar to this soup at a restaurant a few years back. I was sold. Homemade soups are so much better than store-bought ones. And this creamy spinach soup is after all those years still my absolute favorite!
