Simple Chinese Vegetarian Spinach Soup Recipe

Spinach (Spinacia oleracea) is inexpensive and taste great too. It is full of nutrients and there are many ways to prepare spinach dishes. Spinach is a good source of Vitamin A, B, C & E, many types of minerals, iron and folic acid (B6). I tried putting it in soup and the end result tasted quite good! No wonder Popeye loves Spinach so much! LOL!

Spinach, 1 bunch, cut into small strands
Chinese Red Dates, 10 pcs
Dried longan, 10 pcs
Olive oil, 1 teaspoon
Water, 7 bowls
Salt to taste

Put water in a pot and bring to a boil. Put all the ingredients in the boiling water. Let it simmer under medium heat for around 20 minutes. Serve hot with steamed rice.
