Spinach and Sweet Potato Potage

Spinach and Sweet Potato Potage

The color of the spinach is very beautiful. Thanks to the sweetness of the sweet potato, you can make it into a very mild-flavored soup. It's delicious and very nutritious.

Ingredients: 4 plentiful servings

About 300 g (a little less than 1 bunch)
Sweet potato
150 g (half the amount of the spinach)
about 5 g
Olive oil
1 tablespoon
Consommé soup stock granules
1/2 tablespoon
200 ml
300 ml
Salt and pepper
to taste


1. Parboil the spinach, lightly squeeze excess water, and chop into 3-4 bite-sized lengths.
2. Peel the sweet potato, cut into bite-sized pieces, and soak in water. Mince the onion.
3. Add butter and olive oil in a pot, and stir-fry the onion over low heat until translucent. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add water, consommé, and sweet potato.
4. Turn up the heat to medium-high. When it starts to boil, turn down the heat to low. Simmer until a chopstick can go through the sweet potato. Skim off any scum that floats to the top.
5. Put the spinach from Step 1 with the ingredients boiled in the pot, add 1/3 of the milk into a blender, then blend together.
6. When the mixture becomes a thick paste, transfer to the previous pot and heat on low.
7. Add the remaining milk and mix. When it starts to bubble, it's done.
