Soups On… Try Kay’s Spinach and Chorizo Soup

Leave a comment

The final vestiges of snow left last week with the warm onset of spring, but the unrelenting cold, dreary rainy days are back this week letting us know winter is not quite giving way – it’s now Mud Season in Vermont! Many of the dirt roads are largely impassable with mogul-like frost heaves and deep muddy ruts. A delightful time of year with many of the restaurants closed until early May. That said, Kay is undaunted, we have a fire in the fireplace, soup on the stove and a wool blanket nearby. Kay’s Spinach & Chorizo Soup is a hearty winter soup packed with nutrition, but with enough chorizo to bring out the robust flavor. It’s easy to make and incredibly delicious – try it for yourself!
