Spinach Soup

Recently, our premier has announced that the price of spinach has reduced in order to help the citizens coup with the rise in price, amongst others, petrol and electricity. So I have decided to share with you this spinach soup recipe. First, you would need fresh spinach, nicely trimmed and coarsely chopped. You will also need 4 cups chicken broth or chicken soup. Shred some carrots, chop some onions and mince some garlic for seasoning. Prepare some butter, a 1/3 cup should be sufficient. 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup milk and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Follow the following steps to make yourself a nice bowl of spinach soup.


  1. In an oven, bring spinach, broth and carrots to a boil.
  2. Then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remember to stir occasionally.
  3. Remove from the heat and let it cool to luke-warm.
  4. Meanwhile, in a skillet, saute onion and garlic in butter until onion is soft,about 5-10 minutes.
  5. Add flour; cook and stir over low heat for 3-5 minutes. Then add to spinach mixture.
  6. Thereafter, puree in small batches in a blender or food processor until finely chopped.
  7. Place in a large saucepan and add cream, milk, and pepper, heat through but do not boil. Serve warm.
