These flavors are in DH's favortie dip...what a fantastic quick soup it makes! The directions say to add water at the end to thin it a bit, but we left it thick. Serve with Crusty bread!!
- 5 large baking potatoes, peeled and quartered
- 1 (9 ounce) box frozen artichoke hearts, thawed
- 2 (10 ounce) boxes frozen chopped spinach, thawed
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 1 cup 1% low-fat milk
- 1 teaspoon chopped thyme
- 1 (32 ounce) container fat free chicken broth
- 1 cup grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese
- Place the potatoes in a large pot of cold water and bring to a boil.
- Salt the water, lower the heat and simmer until fork tender, approx 15 minute.
- Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot to dry out.
- Place the veggies in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze dry.
- In a med pot, melt the butter in the EVOO over med low heat.
- Add the onion and garlic cook until softened about 5 minute.
- Add the boiled potatoes and milk and mash together (I used an immersion blender).
- Season with salt, pepper and thyme.

Made this tonight and it is very good. Easy recipe with lots of flavor. I did use canned artichoke hearts as I couldn't find frozen and used about 1 1/2lbs yukon gold potatoes. Will definitely make this again! Thanks for sharing!!
I love artichokes and soup so I was looking for a soup recipe that included them. This one is a winner. I didn't have any thyme in the house so I used some poultry seasoning that had thyme in it. My BF doesn't like spinach so I put some aside before adding the spinach and topped with crumbled bacon. Yummo as Rachael would say. I always know her recipes will be easy to prepare, tasty, and not include too many ingredients to over-complicate things.
I was going to post this one, but it looks like you beat me to it. I love this soup and it makes alot - the leftovers are great, too. I used canned artichokes (could not find frozen) and shredded parmesan cheese. It's also good with extra cheese on top after it's cooked.
