Zensen Soup With Spinach and Vegetables

Finally, we have come to the end of this month long A-Z mega Blogging Marathon! Its so hard to believe that its over.So many months of preparations and expectations and now this is the last post in this series!

I did learn a lot of things this month. A lot of new recipes, food stuffs and techniques were showcased by a strong group of 25+ bloggers!

So for the final recipe in this series, I have this filling and healthy soup.Once again this is from one of the treasures I picked up in an shop that sold used books. The book is -Fusion Food-Vegetarian Special by Komal Taneja . I have posted a review here and I had written that this was one the recipes that I sounded interesting and that I would try it out soon. I have already posted the Italian Bhel Puri Salad from this book for the letter 'I' in this A-Z marathon..

I used:

Spinach leaves- a small bunch,cleaned and roughly chopped
Baby corn-6 pieces,cut into 2" pieces
