    BennyPashova's Note:

    Quick to prepare healthy, low calorie soup. If you like spinach you’ll find this soup delicious and filling – a great recipe when you are trying to shed a few extra pounds. The lemon gives it just a little bit of tang. You may add extra garlic if you like bolder taste.

    1. 1
      Thinly chop and sauté the onion in the vegetable oil. Add a bit of water if necessary to prevent burning.
    2. 2
      Mince garlic and add to the sautéed onions along with the rice. Fry mixture for a couple of minutes to ensure that the rice won’t get mushy later.
    3. 3
      Drain spinach and pour the reserved liquid in the pot. Run your knife through the drained spinach chopping the longer stems.
    4. 4
      Add chicken cubes, white pepper, paprika and lemon juice and water.
    5. 5
      Cook for 20 min on medium high heat or until the rice is tender.
    6. 6
      The soup will have a thicker consistency. You can add more water or chicken stock to adjust the thickness to your preferences.

      This was exactly what I was looking for! Had to make some minor adjustments for what was on hand in my kitchen- I used fresh spinach-but flash boiled it beforehand. I also used Swanson chicken broth instead of the stock cubes. Could even be a great Vegan meal! Use Vegetable stock and walla-VEGAN friendly! Thanks Benny, this was just what I was looking for today! and I love that you added lemon juice! I always have to have a fresh lemon wedge with clear broth soups!
