I love spinach cream and this recipe has leek in it. From Ricardo. ETA : I made it on August 27, 2011. I didn't use celery salt. I used a bag of near 170 g of spinach. After I pureed it, I tasted it and liked it that way without anything else. My son that is very picky liked this soup. I was kind of surprised. After he tasted it, he wanted a bowl.
- 1 leek, mince
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon celery salt (obtional)
- 4 cups chicken stock
- 2 cups potatoes, peeled, diced (about 2 potatoes)
- 4 cups fresh spinach, packed (about 140 g or 5 ounce)
- salt and pepper
- In a saucepan, soften leek and garlic in oil. Add celery salt and pepper. Add chicken stock and potatoes. Bring to boil. Cover and let simmer about 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
- Add spinach and keep cooking 1 minute.
- In blender, reduce in a creamy puree and homogeneous. Adjust seasoning. You can serve with firm plain yogurt on top. Or if you have people over, you can use whipped cream instead of yogurt.
I'm really liking this Ricardo. A very good soup and quick to make. I used celery flakes instead of the salt. The soup was salty enough for me with the low-sodium broth. A great way to warm up on a rainy evening.
We loved this soup, great flavor and low in calories. Thanks for posting
This had all my favorite ingredients in it, so I just had to try it! I did not mince the leek, but sliced it thinly. I made the rest of the recipe exactly as posted, using my immersion blender to puree it. At the end, I added a generous dollop of sour cream to blend in. I still thought it needed a little something, so I added about 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese. The end result was delicious! Thanks for sharing this. Made for PRMR Tag Game.
