Spinach Soup with Garlic

Healthy thin soup with a nice garlic flavour added to spinach. The key here is that no milk or cornflour is added which makes the spinach soup very healthy. Adding corn flour or milk would make the soup thicker but slow down you fat burning process as this creates more insulin release.
