Spinach Soup

Ingredients

1 Tablespoon refined coconut oil or butter

1 pound baby spinach, washed

1/2 onion, roughly chopped

3 cups chicken or vegetable stock

Small grating of nutmeg

Salt and pepper

1 cup heavy whipping cream or half-and-half


Directions

  1. Heat Dutch Oven to medium heat. Add onions and saute and until the begin to soften.

  2. Add the spinach and stock in a saucepan, and turn heat to medium high.

  3. Bring to a boil, and lower heat so mixture barely bubbles.

  4. Cook, stirring occasionally, until spinach is tender, about 8 -10 minutes. Turn off heat, add nutmeg and a sprinkling of salt and pepper, and let cool at least a few minutes.

  5. Use an immersion blenders to carefully purée the soup.

  6. Add cream, and, over medium-low heat, reheat gently, stirring occasionally.

  7. When soup is hot, adjust seasoning, serve and enjoy.

Chef's Note: If the soup is too spinachy for your crowd, you can add a few tablespoons of cream cheese while you are reheating (step 5). Cube the cream cheese before adding to the soup so that it will incorporate more easily.
