DIRECTIONS

  • In your favorite soup pot, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Add onions and cook until soft and golden, about 10-15 minutes.
  • (You want the onions to be slightly brown, but not black!) Add the drained lox and chopped dill.
  • Cook 3 minutes, then add the flour and stir well.
  • If it looks like a lox-paste mixture, don't worry, that's how it's supposed to be.
  • While stirring the lox mixture, gradually add the broth.
  • Add potatoes, spinach, salt, and pepper.
  • Turn up heat until mixture boils, then reduce heat to medium/low and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Add milk.
  • Simmer 5 more minutes.
  • Cut the cream cheese into small pieces (1 oz. or 1/2 oz works best).
  • Stir each piece into the soup, one at a time, until each piece has melted into the soup.
  • When the soup is completely smooth, add the nutmeg, wine, and lemon juice.
  • Ladle into bowls and enjoy!
