Description

Scrumptious, creamy spinach soup made extra delicious with a little pile of Gruyere. Nutritious!

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 10 ounces, weight Spinach
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Finely Minced
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • ½ whole Medium Onion
  • ¼ cups Flour
  • 3 cups Whole Milk
  • 1-½ cup Half-and-half
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • ½ teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
  • 4 ounces, weight Gruyere Cheese, Grated (other Cheeses Are Fine)

Preparation

In a large skillet, heat olive over over medium heat. Add spinach and garlic and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, or until wilted. Add spinach to a blender or food processor. Pour in 1/4 cup hot water and pulse until pureed. Set aside.

In a large soup pot, cook onion in butter over medium heat until onions begin to soften. Sprinkle flour over the top and stir to combine. Cook for about 2 minutes, then pour in milk, stirring occasionally. Add salt, pepper, and cayenne and stir to combine. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour in pureed spinach, then cook another 3 to 5 minutes until thickened.

Check seasonings, adding more salt, pepper, or cayenne as needed. Serve in a bowl. Add a little grated Gruyere.

Just made this last night and it was awesome! It took the hubby a few minutes to get over the fact that it was green but once he did, he loved it too and even went for seconds!
