RICH AND CREAMY LEEK SOUP WITH BABY SPINACH AND SHRIMPS

bay leaves

OK, this soup is not not the healthiest there is but I don’t believe in being rigidly healthy all the time…well, maybe that should be read: I don’t manage to eat healthy all the time. But still, I think we need to eat a bit richer food now and then and this is definitely a richer soup than I usually make but I felt a need to make a rich soup and thought that maybe my body needs that right now so I made it and I am happy I did cheat myself about that body craving bit and went ahead! The leek makes the soup sweet and the shrimps add a salty touch-just perfect in my opinion.
