“Green Monster” Spinach Soup

Serves 8


  • 5 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled & roughly chopped
  • 2 lbs. spinach, washed and stemmed
  • 2 yellow onions, roughly chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup light cream
  • 1/4 cup Romano cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • Salt and pepper
  • Pinch of nutmeg

Melt butter in a large soup pot. Add onions and garlic and brown for about 10 minutes. Add potatoes, nutmeg, and enough water to just barely cover the potatoes. Simmer until potatoes are soft, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Add spinach and let sit for 8 to 10 minutes until spinach wilts. Puree in a regular blender or immersion blender. Add cream, cheese, and season with salt and pepper.
