Healthy Green Soup

This green soup is full of flavors, fibers, vitamins and many other health benefits. The combination of spinach, kale, broccoli, peas, beans, garlic, fresh garden herbs and fragrant spices makes

this soup both a pleasant sight and a great experience for the taste buds. I had a little trouble to come up for a suitable name for this soup. As none of the vegetables can be regarded as the main ingredient as can be found in many traditional soup recipes like pea soup, cucumber soup, bean soup or kale soup none of those names would have done this soup recipe justice. So I believe that "Healthy Green Soup" will be the right one to describe this lovely soup.
