Sausage Spinach Soup with essential oils
When using oils for cooking be sure to use the purest oils that can be safely ingested. Essential oils bring out the very best flavors in food because they are concentrated and pure.
Warm homemade goodness on a cold fall day. With fall in the air, my favorite things to fix for dinner are soups. I try to come up with a new soup each fall to add to my collection. Nothing tastes better to warm you from the inside out, than a warm bowl of delicious soup. I normally don’t love cooked spinach, but in this soup it gives color, adds nutrition and tastes amazing. Give this Sausage spinach soup a try, let me know what you think? If you like what you see please share, I would appreciate it. What soups does your family like, I would love to know your ideas to.
