#21 Simple Cream of Spinach Soup

This is a very simple yet full of flavour and delicious soup. You need a blender for that one too.

Serves 4:

1 tbsp vegetable oil

2 large garlic cloves

4 good-sized potatoes chopped

200g young spinach leaves

1.6 l boiling water

1 chicken stock cube

sea salt

100 ml single cream


Wash the spinach leaves and dry them. In a casserole heat the oil and add the spinach leaves, stir well for about 3-4 minutes.
Add the chopped potatoes and the salt and continue stirring for more 1-2 minutes.
Add the boiling water and the stock, cover with a lid and let simmer for 30 minutes or until the spinach leaves are tender.

Leave aside to cool a bit, add the garlic cloves and then blend until everything is smooth.

Return to the heat, add the single cream and heat but don't let to boil.

Cool and serve after 6-8 hours.
