Green spinach vegetarian soup recipe

Summer... It's pretty much hot outside, and it's so great to have for lunch or dinner something light and easy to cook. I found the vegetarian soup really easy and quickly to make. :)Let me share the recipe.

Pour water in a pot, add salt by taste, put it on medium-high heat, and bring it to a boil. Rinse rice and put it in the pot. Peel and chop potatoes, and put them in the pot, too. Bring it to a boil again, and reduce heat to low-medium.

Remove seeds from jalapeno. Those who like more spicy food, leave the seeds.

When the rice and the potatoes are almost cooked, add 2-3 table spoons of this paste. Add more if you like it spicy.

Boil more 2-3 minutes, and the vegetarian soup is ready! Serve it in a bowl topped with shredded cheese, or chopped boiled egg, or with sour cream, or... whatever you want :)
