Having Popeye as spinach’s biggest endorser to date, this veggie has gained immense popularity from all four corners of the globe. It is, hands down, universally acclaimed as one of the biggest providers of calcium and iron. It’s flavorful, versatile and physically appealing to the naked eye. That’s why I love giving this green leaf some interesting twists and turns when I get the chance.
The other night I got my hands working on this cream of spinach soup. It’s simple, rich and elegant. So, who says those three can’t go well together?
To cut to the chase, here goes the recipe:
Hearty Cream Of Spinach Soup
1 pack of fresh spinach, coarsely chopped
1 box all-purpose cream
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
1 and 1/2 cup chicken or beef stock
salt and pepper to taste
1. In a skillet, saute garlic and onion. Throw in spinach and mix in stock. Bring down to a simmer. Never overcook the spinach.
2. Meantime, transfer this mixture into a food processor or blender.
3. Pulse until semi smooth.
4. Put back on the skillet. Switch heat to medium. Add cream. Season with salt and pepper. Stir. Serve.
