I never imagined my kids actually asking for seconds of spinach until I created this soup!  After the soup is cooked, sometimes I throw in small cooked pasta shapes such as ditali, macaroni or shells.


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ⅓ cup chopped onion
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup bite size potatoes
  • 5 cups chopped spinach (142 g or 5 oz package)
  • 1 cup milk (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste



  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and add the chopped onion.


  1. Sauté the onion for about 2 minutes and then add the broth.


  1. Add the potatoes and chopped spinach and stir to combine.


  1. Cover and cook for about 10 to 15 minutes or until the potatoes have softened.


  1. Remove from heat and let cook.


  1. Once cooled, use a handheld blender or food processor to puree to desired texture.


  1. Add milk for a creamier soup.


  1. Reheat before serving and add salt and pepper to taste.
