A hearty bowl is low calorie, low carb, vegan, and Zero Points Plus on Weight Watchers according to my calculations. Yet it is flavorful, fast, and full of fiber.
This healthy soup is a winner!
The main ingredients are generous amounts of spinach, celery, onions and garlic simmered for just 5-7 minutes in a vegetable broth ( or chicken broth if you are so inclined) and then pureed. The soup boasts powerful immune building protective antioxidants which is a plus during the fall and winter flu season!
Yes, fall is officially here and the weather is getting chillier. Wouldn't a hearty bowl of hot soup warm the soul and the belly?

The best part is this wonderful soup is Zero Points Plus on Weight Watchers! That means you can enjoy a bowl and not even has to subtract any points from your daily point allotment of points on Weight Watchers! That means it's low in calories for every diet!

You can spice it up with one of the following spices:
- curry spices
Trust me. The soup doesn't need anyone of the spices, it is wonderful just the way it is.
I just wanted to point out that it lends itself to other variations.
Low Carb Diet?
Sometimes I'm following a low carb diet like an Atkins type, so I can add lots more fat to the recipe and make it taste like a richer creamy spinach soup.
