Crock Pot Soup

It's been a soup week and I'm loving it! Wednesday I made a crock pot full of Savory Bean and Spinach Soup (the leftovers have been good too). It's a perfectly fine soup, it just tastes healthy (the site said it had 150 calories per serving!). As you can see from the ingredient list there is not any one ingredient to give it that pop of flavor so I added a good shot of Sriracha sauce to mine. I would also add another can of beans to it because there weren't enough in each spoonful for me. So it could be a keeper with a couple of additions.
