soup with grilled cheese croutnsI think I’ve said a gazillion times that I absolutely love the #TwoIngredientGame. It’s super fun to take two ingredients and figure out what to do with them. While I was traveling for Dining with DariusCooks in VA Beach, I decided to play the game. I took spinach and grilled cheese and came up with this beauty. It’s super simple to whip up and the crispy grilled cheese croutons makes it super satisfying!

Even with the grilled cheese, this dish is only 310 calories (using 3 croutons per serving)!
