Spinach-Ginger Soup



Yes, we've had some good weather here in LA recently. I was finally able to wear my favorite sweater and hoodie for the first time. Oh how I missed snuggling up in there, keeping me nice and cozy. The only down side it that I wasn't feeling my usual self to actually enjoy it. Grr... So to perk up my spirits, I decided to make some soup.

Spinach and ginger to be exact. And my mood lifted a little brighter afer having this. I still wasn't feeling to well, but I was on the road to recovery. I pureed haf the soup to have it smooth and chunky. Serve with some toast or crackers. Snuggle up in a blanky ot not and enjoy the lovely gingery flavor. Look at that luscious green soup with a generous sprinkle of shredded mozzarella and slices of avocado. How could this not perk up your spirits?

Serves 2-3



Spinach-Ginger Soup

1lb spinach - fresh or frozen
1 12oz can vegetable stock
2 tbsp ginger - minced
2 green onion - finely chopped
1 large garlic clove - finely chopped
1/2 tsp nutmeg
salt
pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
1/8 c evaporated milk

On medium to low heat, saute the garlic in the olive oil for 30 seconds then add the ginger and green onions. roughly 1-2 minutes.

Add the chicken stock and and stir to combine.

Add the spinach, bring the soup to a simmer until the spinach has wilted. Stori well to combine.

Then puree half the soup using a blender, food process, or hand blender. Or just leave it as a chunky soup. Serve warm.
