Silky Edamame Soup

This soup is exceptional from the color to the bright flavors.

I love to pair this soup with all of my Asian entrees. Do not make this soup with regular spinach only use baby spinach. I cooked it with regular spinach and it changes the flavor of the entire soup. 

I found this recipe in my Skinnytaste Cookbook.  If you don’t have this cookbook buy it because there are a lot of great recipes in it.
