I made this recipe after eating Spinach Soup in the Swiss Alps. A real winter soup.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the butter/oil in a saucepan.
  2. Saute the onions and garlic until the onion softens.
  3. Add the stock and bring to a boil.
  4. Add the defrosted spinach, dried tarragon and white wine (if used).
  5. Reduce heat to a simmer for about 20 minutes.
  6. Just before serving you may have to use a stab-mixer to get the right consistency.
  7. Season with Salt and Pepper.

A chef I used to work with made a Spinach soup that was sold out every day. I used to get mine and put it in the frige so I could eat it later!! This soup is just like it except for one thing. He added cream to his, and I did that too. It was marvelous!!! I will be making this a lot.

I love this soup. I added alphabet pasta at the end- good stuff!

wow! i was so absolutely certain when i got to the simmering stage that this was going to taste terrible. how wrong i was! delicious and so damn easy to make. i mean, it's essentially stock and spinach - so if you don't like them then stay away, but if you do then get amongst it!
