Broccoli Spinach Soup

"That was great soup - save the recipe" was a direct quote from my husband at least 4 times after I made it!

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 6 green onions, chopped (white and green parts)
  • 1/4 red sweet pepper, chopped
  • 1-1/2 tbsp. flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 2 cups vegetable broth (I use Better than Bouillon™ Vegetable Base)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 lb. fresh broccoli - wash, chop coarsely
  • 10 oz. bag of fresh baby spinach (re-wash and drain well)
