​How to Make Cheesy Spinach Soup (a Calcium-Rich Lunch or Dinner)!

My kids love this cheesy spinach soup recipe. It's ready in about 15 minutes and you can keep everything on hand to make it anytime! Gotta love that!

You'll need:

  • 2 cans (16 ounces each) chicken broth  
  • 2 packages (9 ounces each) frozen chopped spinach
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 cans (12 ounces each) evaporated milk
  • 5 tablespoons flour
  • 16 ounces cubed Velveeta or shredded American cheese

Here's how you make it:

  1. In a large soup pot, combine the broth, spinach and onion powder. Bring to a boil.
  2. While the soup is coming to a boil, combine the milk and flour until it’s smooth and has no lumps. Add mixture to the soup when it comes to a boil. Stir well to combine.
  3. Reduce heat to low and continue to cook for 2 minutes. Add the cheese and cook, stirring, until melted. 

Yep, it's really that easy! Served with a salad it's a quick vegetarian meal!

Sounds interesting. Cheddar broccoli is the favorite in our house. Let's see if I can change it up without complaints! :)
