Simple Sausage & Spinach Soup Recipe

47 Flares 47 Flares ×

One of my favorite parts about winter is making homemade soup. I discovered how easy it is to make soup just a few years ago and every winter as the temperatures drop I pull out my slow cooker, pots, and pans and start cooking. Not only do I enjoy eating homemade soup but I like being able to control the amount of sodium as well. We use no- or low- sodium broth and have been happy to find it’s just as flavorful without all that sodium.

The other day I made a delicious sausage & spinach soup. It was so simple and so good I can’t wait to make it again. Normally I make my soup in the slow cooker but this time I decided to see how it would taste on the stove top  Logan helped me chop the fresh spinach really small so it would be easy for the kids to eat. Dave and I wouldn’t mind if the spinach was a bit bigger next time. Also, I think it would be just as good with kielbasa if that’s what you have on hand.

Either way it’s a great soup that’s easy, delicious, hearty, and filling especially on a cold winter day.
