Recently we've been dealing with oral surgery that necessitated soft foods for a number of days, and I needed something different to offer, plus I needed something meatless for Lent. I played around with what I had in the pantry, and this is the result. Chicken broth can be used, and I also love to throw in some shredded white cheese in each serving..

I loved this! Halved the recipe and it turned out beautifully. Although I halved the recipe, I used 4 garlic cloves....love garlic! I also used homemade chicken broth instead of vegetable broth and I think it tasted wonderful. Thanks for sharing!
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 8 garlic cloves, halved if large
- 1⁄2 cup sliced carrot
- 1 large potato, peeled and chopped
- 2 -3 black peppercorns
- 10 ounces fresh spinach, well-washed and roughly chopped
- 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
Directions See How It's Made
- Put the broth, onion, garlic, carrots, potato, and peppercorns in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.
- Add the spinach and continue to simmer until the veggies are tender and the spinach is wilted, about 5 to 10 minutes longer.
- Remove from heat. Puree with an immersion blender. If you do not have an immersion blender, puree in batches in a blender. Stir in the milk.
- Return to the stove and heat briefly to heat the milk.
- Note: I do not add salt, as for me the broth adds more than enough. If you are using homemade broth, salt to taste.
