Rich Spinach Potage

Rich Spinach Potage

Blanching the spinach only requires a tiny bit of effort, but makes all the difference!

Spinach is said to be good for colds, and for preventing cancer and arteriosclerosis. It is also supposed to be good for your skin.

Ingredients: 3 servings

1 bunch
Sliced onion
400 ml
Chicken consomme stock cube
to taste
10 g


1. Blanch the spinach in a lot of water. Drain and cut into small pieces.
2. Melt butter in a pan and sauté the sliced onions. Stop cooking before they brown and let cool.
3. Put the onions, spinach and 100 ml of milk in a blender and purée.
4. It should be the right texture and color after about 2 minutes. It should look like dark-green tea.
5. Transfer the purée into a pot and add the rest of the milk and the consomme cube and season with salt. Heat the soup over medium heat. Turn off the heat just before it starts to boil.
6. Serve the soup with heavy cream, black pepper, croutons or parmesan cheese if desired.
