Soothing carrot soup

Not surprisingly this spring has been totally schizophrenic. One day it's hot, the next day is cold. We had one 80 degree week in late March and in late April (right now), we are having a rainy week in the 50s (feels like fall). And so, naturally a soothing soup is in order!

8 to 10 c. water
3 veggie bullion cubes
7 carrots
2 c. baby spinach
1 c. green beans
5 garlic cloves
2 tomatoes
garlic powder and s & to taste 

What to do?
Add water to pot and let it boil. Add veggie cubes let them dissolve. Add carrots, garlic cloves,garlic powder, salt and pepper. Let it cook for 20 minutes (or until carrots are tender), add green beans and tomatoes let cook an additional 4 minutes. Turn off soup, add spinach and cover for an additional 5 minutes. Serve.

This soup is sure to take away those (annoying) spring time chills!
