January is a good time to have soups: it is cold and we all need something on a light side after the Christmas binges.
Get some tender spinach leafs, rice and an onion and you will make a delicious and light soup in no time.
This is a very Italian one and I like it because it is mild in taste and I can always make it at the last minute.
Wash and clean the spinach leafs (small ones will be more tender). Then chop the onion finely
Put the spinach, the onion, the stock cube, salt and cold water in a large pan. Cover up and bring to the boil
Boil for 10 minutes then add the rice. Cook for about 10 minutes until the rice has cooked; keep stirring from time to time
Switch the heat off and add a large tbsp of olive oil, pepper and 2 tbsp of grated Parmesan
Stir well and serve
