Creamy Spring Greens Soup

This Spring Greens Soup is uber creamy thanks to the roasted yellow potatoes and the Silk® Unsweetened almondmilk! Full of gorgeous green veggies, its color is as satisfying as its taste. 

I don't know about you, but I am totally craving allllllllllll the greens!

Maybe because it's officially #GreenWeek over on my @eattherainbow_kids account?

Or maybe just because it's like the 7,839th day of winter... 

But regardless, I want them all ----> in soup form (like the recipe below), in smoothies, in hearty salads, in pesto, and by the forkful. Just look at how vibrant that green is!

One of my favorite places to buy fresh vegetables is Sprouts Farmers Market. They always have such a great selection, and I also love their house brand items like their organic Spring Greens, their tahini, and their spices (like the sesame seeds) that I used in this soup. Annnnnnnnd Sprouts is having a huge plant-based sale this month --- with select items up to 35% off, like the Silk almondmilk

See just how EASY it is to make:

I love the addition of fresh celery leaves for additional color and texture on top --- as well as the sauteed greens, peas, and sliced scallions. The toppings take this soup to next-level awesome!

This cozy soup is perfect for a chilly Spring evening ("Spring" in Colorado means even MORE snow --- like the 12+ inches we got this week!) or even in the lunchbox.

In these lunchboxes:

  • Creamy Spring Greens Soup (recipe below)
  • Silk Vanilla Almondmilk
  • Sprouts Farmers' Market brand blue corn tortilla chips
  • Organic Blueberries
  • Sunbutter + Celery Sticks

Tell me... do you include hot foods in your school lunchboxes?
