Popeye the Sailor Man’s Soup (Spinach Soup)


.5 lb. Turkey Kielbasa Link (We’ve tried Turkey Kielbasa Link, Smoked Sausage, etc. All were tasty, but turkey kielbasa link’s the best for us!)
2 nice size Frozen Boneless Chicken Breast
3 cups Water (Up to 6c worth)
3 Chicken Broth Cubes (Up to 6c worth)
1 cup Mild Salsa
1/4 cup dried Parsley (1/2 cup if fresh)
3 cloves Garlic, minced.
1 medium Onion, diced.
1 Celery, sliced long way, then sliced into slices.
1 cup dry Green Lentils (We have improvised w/ 15 bean or barley. Tho, lentil’s best, it still worked in a pinch.)
1 15oz can Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans), drained.
1 16oz bag FRESH Spinach Leaves, chopped.

Spray crockpot with butter flavored cooking spray. Add all ingredients to crockpot and cook 4-6 hours.
**This recipe is quite thick. If you want a more soup texture, ADD more water and broth cubes (Equal each). Maybe 5-6cups chicken broth total, instead of 3. If decided later into cooking that it needs more, remember to cook more, after adding. To allow flavors to blend.
