We add kale to this soup. You can use spinach instead if you like. We tend to use whatever we have on hand. They both work well and are just as delicious as the other. Sometimes we use both! Whatever we have on hand we use. It’s a great way to clean out the fridge.

Honestly, we freeze soup all the time. We love having soup in the freezer for those nights when you don’t feel like cooking.
