Tips

*Packaged prewashed and ready to eat spinach does not have to be washed. Spinach that is not packaged does need to be rinsed under running water before using.

Try using kale, collard greens, or a 10 ounce package of frozen spinash in place of the fresh spinach.

Soup freezes well.

Use plain diced tomatoes for less spiciness.

Use washed and diced garden tomatoes and homemade broth if they are available. Keep cut tomatoes cold until you need them.

Wash fresh vegetables under running water before preparing.
