Potato Spinach Soup RecipeThis Potato Spinach Soup recipe is healthy and hearty, and a favorite at my house.

It is also very easy to make–throw it in the crock pot and let it simmer for later!

POTATO SPINACH SOUP RECIPE

4 large baking potatoes
1 onion
2 tablespoons butter
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
2 cans spinach, or 2 small packages frozen spinach, or 4 cups shredded fresh spinach
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
2 tablespoons parsley leaves
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese or Velveeta

Spray crock pot with cooking spray. Peel and dice potatoes and onion and place in crock pot. Add butter and cream of mushroom soup. Drain spinach and squeeze out excess liquid if using canned, add spinach to crock pot. Add salt, pepper and parsley leaves and cheese. Add enough water to just cover all of the ingredients in the crock pot. Cook on high for 5 hours.

Have you ever checked the label on spinach? It’s really good for you! It’s good for pets, too. I mix it in with my dog’s and cat’s food, and also use it if I make them a batch of home-cooked pet food.
