The credit for this recipe of "Clear Soup"  goes to my brother. Its his signature soup. Very simple to make,clear, tasty and one of the healthiest soup.

All u need :

Spinach          :  1
Carrots           : 2   peel out, diced.
Celery   (Optional)      
Lemon leaves  : 2-4 (cut into 2).

1. Put the chicken  into a large stock pot and cover with cold water. Add about a teaspoon of salt, 1/4 tsp of pepper. Bring to a boil and immediately reduce heat to bring the stock to barely a simmer. Simmer uncovered at least 1 hours, occasionally skimming off the foam that comes to the surface.
