A great way of getting some greens into your diet. Frozen spinach is boiled in chicken stock until tender. The mixture is then thickened with a roux and single cream. Serve with crumbled cheese and garlic croutons, if desired.

Great recipe! I did make changes in preparation beginning with sauteeing the onion & fresh garlic and then adding chicken broth instead of the water. I did not thaw the spinach but did puree the spinach/broth/onion mixture before adding the cream base. To cut fat I substituted 1 1/2 cups of half-and-half with a can of evaporated milk. We will definitely be making this a lot -- easy and very satisfying. Thanks for a great recipe. - 15 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My husband made this soup and it turned out delicious! The taste reminded me of my mother's homemade creamed spinich, just more "soupy." My only suggestion is, if you're making it for more than two adults, double the recipe. 2 adults and one 7 year old finished this off in one sitting. We will make it again and we WILL double the recipe. Thanks! - 23 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
