READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by sugarpea

Wonderful comfort food from Rozanne Gold, a favorite cookbook author. This is a creamless creamed soup and it's delicious. It's made thick with potatoes and rich with butter. The color of this soup is stunning.

A very green soup. I felt it needed a little something, so I added some chopped onions to the potatoes, which I liked a lot. This was more like three servings for me, but I admit that we like big servings of soup. I this will also work well with frozen spinach - might be its best use! Thanks for posting.

  1. Bring water and salt to a boil; cut the potatoes in half lengthwise, and then into 1/2" thick slices; boil over medium-high heat for twenty minutes.
  2. Add the spinach and boil another 10 minutes being careful to not overcook in order to maintain it's bright green color.
  3. Drain, reserving 1 1/4 cups cooking liquid; in a food processor, process the potatoes and spinach until very smooth, adding the butter 1/2 T at a time.
  4. Return the puree to the pot and add the reserved liquid until the desired consistency; reheat slowly and season with salt and pepper; ladle into shallow soup plates and garnish with nutmeg or shaved cheese.
