How to Make Spinach Soup Recipe:

  • To cook the soup we need a small to medium saucepan with a lid, a large frying pan and a blender.
  • Heat 2 tsp. of olive oil over a medium heat in a saucepan, throw the chopped onion in and saute until soft and the onion starts changing color - about 3 min. Add the garlic and nutmeg and saute until the aroma is released for half a minute or so.
  • Pour in the vegetable stock, add chopped cauliflower, bring to the boil covered with a lid, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 min. When done, let it cool down for about 10 min before transferring it to the blender. You need to make sure it is not too hot so it does not crack the glass on the blender.

Cooking the Soup
  • Meanwhile, thoroughly wash the spinach under a cold running tap. Put the spinach in a large frying pan over a high heat, steam for 2 min constantly mixing with a spatula. The spinach will wilt and shrink.
  • Puree the spinach, cauliflower and broth in the blender. If the soup is hot enough to eat you can dish up straight away. If it is not hot enough return to the pot and warm through on a low heat. Alternatively, you can cool the soup down if you are after a cold spinach soup.
  • Finish the dish with sour cream and freshly ground black pepper.
