Spinach Soup - simple soup recipe - Healthy starter recipe

I do soup at least twice a week. We like something which is simple and lighter version. So most of the time I don't add Cream to the soup. I have tied both cream version and non cream version for this. I like both the version. I always feel Spinach goes well with Cheese and cream. What I am posting here is without cream. If you want to add cream you can add in the place of Milk or together with milk. Make sure you add milk after switching off the flame. Otherwise it might curdle

Garlic - 4 pods
