I don't think I ever made a spinach soup that I did not like. I made about half the recipe, which was two servings for us. I used a combination of fresh and frozen spinach, as I had some fresh to use up. I put a little butter in the saucepan, added the onion and carrots and sauteed for a bit. Then added the garlic and spinach and sauteed just a touch. Then I sprinkled the flour over the veggies and stirred until no flour was showing. Now I added the broth and simmered. When everything was soft, I added a combination of whole milk and half and half and blended. Reheated briefly to bring it up to the proper temp. I loved this as written, Mr Grumpy insisted on pouring in hot sauce.... Still, another good way of making a delicious soup.
Loved this! I also increased the nutmeg just a bit. I really enjoyed how light and tasty this was. I used frozen turkey stock leftover from Thanksgiving instead of chicken broth, and it seemed to work out well. Thanks for sharing!
This was DELICIOUS SOUP Debbwl! I made as directed, but added an additional 2 cups of broth, and used 8 cloves garlic. This made for a very garlicy flavor, but didn't overpower the spinach. WONDERFUL GOOD STUFF ~ DH really enjoyed it, he had 2 bowls. I served it with garlic-cheese croutons. Thanks for posting, a new keeper for us. Made for FALL PHOTO TAG - OCTOBER 2010!
Surprisingly enough, I've never had spinach soup. This is wonderful. I did add a bit more nutmeg, as I couldn't taste it at an 1/8 tsp. Keeper for sure. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag. :)
