I found that 5oz= 3 cups so I did 3 cups arugula, 3 cups baby spinach, and 2 cups kale. I added a tsp of sugar and extra lemon juice and it still turned out very bitter. I wonder if it would be better without kale? I don’t know that I’ll try this again.
I did a search and 8 cups works out to a little over 8.5 ozs of greens.
I agree. Measuring greens by weight is much better. Thank you, Cyndy for doing that math and sharing it with us. I appreciate you.
Please include weights for things like spring greens … 16 ounces of spring greens is a whole lot easier to buy than 8 cups otherwise it sounds really good and will try it
I 100% agree cuz 1 cup is. 8 oz of LIQUID, but when making the stores sell oz of solid. How am I supposed to know how much it turns into liquid form before I actually blend it. I bought way too much greens. There has got to be an easier measurement. Aside of that it’s a wonderful soup. I absolutely loved the flavor and what a great way to eat a ton of greens!
