Cream of Spinach Soup

Makes: 4 servings

Time: 25 Minutes


  • 6 Tablespoons Olive Oil, divided
  • 1/2 Cup Chives, chopped, fresh
  • 5 Ounces Package Baby Spinach, organic
  • 1/3 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 Teaspoons Curry Powder
  • 1 Cup Sour Cream or Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 4 Cups Veggie Broth
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Croutons


In a medium soup pot, saute 3 tablespoons of oil with chives and spinach until spinach wilts.  Remove mixture to a bowl.

Mix flour and curry powder together.

In the same pot, add 3 more tablespoons of olive oil.  Add the flour mixture stirring to form a roux.

Carefully add the broth, a little at a time, and stir until mixture is smooth.

Using a ladle, scoop about 1/2 cup of the soup mixture out and mix with the sour cream or yogurt until smooth.

Add the spinach mixture back to the pot and blend again if you prefer a smooth soup.

Add the sour cream mixture at the very end and stir until well-blended.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Add extra water, as needed, for preferred soup consistency.

Heat soup thoroughly and serve with crunchy croutons on top.
