Recipe Ingredients for Spinach Soup

1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 Onion
1 cup+chopped+raw Yukon Gold Potatoes
4 cups Water
1/4 tsp Marjoram
1/4 tsp thyme
1 tsp,+crumbled Bay Leaf
14 ounces Spinach
1 tsp Nutmeg
2 tbsp Fat Free Sour Cream

Recipe Directions for Spinach Soup

  1. Heat the oil in a heavy-based saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they begin to soften.

  2. Add the potato, water, marjoram, thyme, and bay leaf, along with a large pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover and cook gently for about 25 minutes until the vegetable are tender. Remove the bay leaf and the herb stems.

  3. Add the spinach and continue cooking for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, just until it is completely wilted.

  4. Allow the soup to cool slightly, then transfer to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth, working in batches if necessary. (If using a food processor, strain off the cooking liquid and reserve. Puree the soup solids with enough cooking liquid to moisten them, then combine with the remaining liquid.)

  5. Return the soup to the saucepan and thin with a little more water, if wished. Season with salt, and good grinding of pepper and a generous grating of nutmeg. Place over a low heat and simmer until reheated.

  6. Ladle the soup into warm bowls and swirl in the fat free sour cream. Serve warm.
