Though I love soups, I haven’t had a bowl of any kind since last winter. In Florida most of the year, it’s just too hot for soup for me and I don’t like cold soups at all.

But the winter here is when it’s great for a bowl of comfort food cause the temps are like in 30s at night and gets up to 70ish during the day. This is actually my favorite time of the year. I love “not too hot not too cold” temps and I try to enjoy it as long as possible.

Today’s recipe is taking that spinach and making it into a comforting soup. I didn’t grow up liking spinach haa haa! But that all changed when I grew up!

Cream of Spinach Soup

Course: Ordinary Recipes Made Gourmet

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb. fresh spinach, stems removed

  • 6 tbsp. butter

  • 1 c. chopped onion

  • 4 med. potatoes, peeled & quartered, about 3 cups

  • 2 c. chicken stock

  • 2 c. water

  • Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 c. heavy cream

Directions

  • Rinse the spinach and shred it with a knife. 
  • Heat 4 tablespoons of the butter in a large saucepan and cook the onion until wilted. 
  • Add the spinach, potatoes, stock and water and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 25 minutes.
  • Put the soup through a sieve or place in blender until smooth. 
  • If using a blender, do small quantities because steam from the hot liquid can force the lid off the blender. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Stir in cream. Bring to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and swirl in remaining butter. Serve immediately.
