A lovely light soup to serve as a wonderful starter on a winter-day.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 1/2 quarts water
- 1 cube chicken bouillon
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 4 small potatoes, peeled and halved
- ground nutmeg to taste
- 1/2 cup milk
- salt and pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion until tender.
In a saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and dissolve the bouillon cube in the water.
In a blender or food processor, blend the onion, spinach, potatoes, nutmeg, and about 2 cups of the bouillon until thick and smooth.
Blend the potato mixture into the saucepan with the remaining bouillon. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. Stir in the milk, and continue cooking 10 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and more nutmeg to taste. Thus the soup is complete.
