Easy Creamy Spinach Soup

A delicious and nutritious spinach soup that's perfect any time of the year. Enjoy with a dollop of fat-free sour cream of plain yogurt.

  • 50g butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 medium potato, peeled and chopped into chunks
  • 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 cup milk
  • 450g fresh spinach, washed


Melt the butter in a pan, add the onion and garlic and fry gently until softening. Stir in the potato and continue to cook gently for 1 minute. Pour in the stock and simmer for 8-10 minutes until the potato starts to cook. Pour in the milk and bring up to a simmer, then stir in spinach.

Cover and simmer for 15 minutes until the spinach has completely wilted down. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes. Pour the soup into a blender or food processor and process until silky smooth.  Return to the pan and reheat. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
