I have to share another recipe. Actually I kind of made this up yesterday, although I am sure it is not original and that it likely already exists in many forms. It was a spur of the moment thing for me though, and we really liked how it turned out.
Davey even tasted the soup. If you consider a couple of licks a taste, and at this point we do! “MMMMMM, it’s delicious,” he said as he gently set the spoon down and backed away slowly.
So, I already had a recipe for potato soup that I really like. I got it from my sister.
I boiled about 10Yukon gold potatoes in just enough water to cover them. I did use organic potatoes as I have been going organic as much as I can lately. I don’t know if this was a factor in taste. Maybe not.
I added a can of chicken broth as well. Then I added an 8 ounce package of cream cheese. I’ve used the Neufatchel before, but I went full fat last night.
Then I remembered that I had some fresh spinach in the refrigerator. It was quickly losing its freshness and needed to be used. So I chopped up an onion and chopped up the spinach, and sauteed them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil until soft and wilty. Then I added it all to the potato soup. I added salt and a little pepper to taste. That’s it. It was so good! We finished it off tonight.
Halfway through dinner tonight, I decided I wanted to blog about it. Well, the light was no good. No natural light to be found. The soup was half-eaten, so the bowl was looking a little messy. But I thought, I have to have some kind of shot. So here we go:
Here’s a pdf for the recipe: Potato Spinach Soup This will be handy for me as well!
thanks!- given that I also have spinach losing its freshness and a big bag of onions & a bag of potatoes, this may just be the ticket!
Mmm, I’ll have to try that. I’m a spinach freak. Last night I made a cream sauce with baby bellas, shallots, white wine, etc., then thickened it and added a pound of spinach. Better Half and I ate the entire dish. (I actually ran my finger around the edge of the pot before I cleaned it–shhhh!)
P.S. Oh, and potatoes with spinach–sublime sounding!
