Cream of Spinach Soup

A creamy spinach soup is an appetizing start to a meal. Spinach isn’t really my favourite, but given its nutritional values, I try to stir up something interesting, like the crackling spinach. This cream of spinach soup is now a standard in my kitchen, especially in the winters. Its quick, tasty, and healthy. Enjoy!

Creamy Spinach Soup



2 cups or 500 grams fresh, chopped spinach

1/2 cup chopped onions

2 cups water

1 teaspoon minced garlic

2 tsp butter

2 tbsp all-purpose flour

2 cups milk

Salt and pepper to season


1. Boil the spinach, onion, and garlic in a large pot over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until onion is tender.

2. In a saucepan, melt the butter and whisk in the flour.  Cook for a minute or two. Slowly stir in the milk and mix until smooth.

3. Pour the cream mixture into the spinach soup. Simmer for about 5 minutes, until thick . Season to taste with salt and pepper.

For a richer version, add a little heavy whipping cream while making the cream mixture. You can top the soup with grated cheese.
