SPINACH-LEMON SOUP

INGREDIENTS ( SPINACH-LEMON SOUP ) :

1 tbsp butter or olive oil 1 medium onion, diced

2-3 garlic cloves, finely diced 1 tsp chili flakes

12 cups fresh spinach

3 cups vegetable broth

1 lemon, zested and juiced salt and pepper

AD D I T I O N S

cream cheese

goat cheese

sour cream

lemon-infused olive oil

I make this soup whenever I’ve bought too much spinach and it is about to go off. It has amazingly deep flavour.

Put a pot on medium heat. Add the butter or olive oil and wait until it just starts to sizzle. Add the onion and cook for three to four minutes. Add the garlic and chili flakes, stirring occasionally for another minute. Throw in half of your spinach and a teaspoon of water, then put a lid on the pot. Stir it frequently, encouraging it to wilt.

Once there is room in the pot, add the rest of the spinach. Once it has all cooked down, add the vegetable broth and the lemon zest. Let it come to a boil and turn down the heat. Cook for another two minutes, then taste it and add an aggressive amount of salt and pepper. This is such a simple soup that it needs to be well seasoned.

Blitz the soup with an immersion blender or a regular blender to make a beautiful green purée. Try to make the soup as smooth as possible. If

the spinach still tastes at all raw, put it back on the heat and boil for few more minutes until the soup is silky smooth.

Just before you finish, squeeze in the lemon juice and stir one last time.

Serve the soup with any or none of the suggested additions.
