Took shortcuts. Microwave spinach on high for 4 min (till tender). Put flour in liquidizer, add spinach & stock - wizz then transfer to pot Add water. Boil till thickened. Add milk - 12 Aug 2009


Thanks for posting :-) I fell in LOVE with spinach ever since I was a toddler and can eat LOADS of it almost every day, (as usual with me) I make this soup using 1 kilo of frozen spinach!... 2-3 cups of water and 4-5 cloves of GARLIC instead of onions (it does make a huge difference)- and when it's all thickened I like to swap milk for buttermilk...or add milk and serve the soup with a dollop of a soured cream, mmm... - 17 Feb 2014
