This is the best tasting soup ever! If you are on a low carb diet and can enjoy fats, but not carbs then this is awesome.

Directions

  1. combine water, onions, garlic powder, salt, pepper, bouillon cube and spinach (I grabbed 6 large handfuls) in saucepan until it starts to come to a boil.
  2. Then add butter.
  3. Once butter melts add in heavy whipping cream.
  4. Cook for a few more minutes until spinach is desired tenderness.
  5. If you would like put spinach in food processor or blender to make it smaller pieces.

This is a tasty soup, but when I saw the whopping number of calories, I made several changes. As a low-carber, I normally don't pay too much attention to calories, but they seemed excessive. I cut the butter in half and briefly sauteed the onion in it. Then I added everything else except the cream, and simmered it for about 10 minutes. When I pureed the soup in my food processor, I then added 1 cup of heavy cream (not a full pint). Even with half the butter and half the cream it was rich tasting.
