One Bag of Spinach = Walnut and Spinach Pesto & Spinach and Coconut Soup

As I was walking through the vegetable aisle, I spotted spinach.  Green, vibrant looking leaves were so attractive that I couldn’t just walk away. I had to buy it. 
And I did.
Usually I use spinach fresh in different kind of salads and very rarely cook it but this time I had something different in my mind. Actually I thought about two things.
One is pesto. Walnut and spinach pesto to be exact.  Spinach pesto is nice alternative to basil as it has milder taste and is as delicious as basil pesto.
With plenty spinach left I could only think about one thing to do with them. And that’s to make a soup.  Very simple but very soul warming soup.
That day our souls definitely were warmed and happy : )
