A simple but really healthy Spinach Soup recipe, perfect for your little ghouls this Halloween!
Halloween is a brilliant time of year to get the kids excited about food. We often associate this time of year with an abundance of sweets and candy, but there are lots of ways to make healthy food just as fun and appealing.
This soup is really simple to make and is packed full of nutritious fresh spinach. Spinach is one vegetable which can be really difficult to get kids to eat, but blended into a ghoulish Halloween soup like this makes it a lot easier to convince them to try it!
It is also a fantastic recipe to make in bulk. It can be kept in the fridge for up to three days or can be frozen and stored in the freezer for up to four months.
I like to finish my Spinach Soup with a swirl of cream and some chilli flakes. But feel free to leave these off for the little ones!
