Shrek Soup

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by ChefLee

I made up this soup and named it after Shrek because it's chunky, has lots of green and is a little sweet and spicy! Please try to use the fire-roasted tomatoes and fresh spinach, they give such great flavor. They carry the Muir Glen brand at Whole Foods and Wal-Mart Supercenter. I hope you enjoy it!

Overall it was pretty good for a vegtable soup. It didnt say where to add the ginger in so i just added it in the end. I also substituted a jalapeno for half a habanero since my grocery store was out of jalapenos at the time and i love habaneros. I used plain diced tomatoes since i couldnt find the ones called for and added some galic powder at the end. Very tasty, but a bit salty.
