Spring Greens soup…

Do you see that peek of Spring outside?? So nice!! I tried a new soup….so good for you and perfect way to use up some of those spring greens!! Also—a great soup for St Patrick’s Day!!!

Sort of like a creamy potato soup with greens :)

Isn’t everything better with a little shredded cheddar…just sayin

If your potatoes are this large…just use 3 of them…quarter them up

Heat up the oil, slice up the onion and put in oil. Saute about 5 minutes

Combine the stock and pepper and salt…put in the pot..boil…

put in the quartered up potatoes in the pot….cover and simmer about 10 minutes…
get out your immersion blender (you can use a regular blender…but be careful and do it in batches)
blend the onion and potatoes until smooth….return pot to the heat

add in all your lovely greens… heat until wilted…

go at it again with the immersion blender until smooth. I had to add a bit more stock to mine…it was really thick…
Add some shredded cheddar to the top…yumm!!!!
Here is the recipe…from BHG
Ingredients

1 medium onion, halved and sliced

1 Tbsp. cooking oil

3 cups reduced sodium-chicken broth or vegetable broth

1/4 to 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper ( I would add 1/2 t of salt too)

12 oz. Yukon gold potatoes, quartered

3 cups fresh spinach leaves

3 cups fresh arugula leaves

2 cups fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley leaves and tender stems ( I would only use 1.5 C)

Fresh arugula–or cheese to garnish

Directions

1. In 3-quart saucepan cook onion in hot oil over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add broth, pepper, and salt. Bring to boiling. Add potatoes and return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 10 minutes.
2. Remove saucepan from heat. Use immersion blender to blend onion-potato mixture until almost smooth. Add spinach, arugula, and parsley. Return to heat. Bring to boiling; remove from heat. Using immersion blender, puree soup again until nearly smooth and flecks of green remain. Season to taste with salt. Serve immediately topped with sauteed mushrooms and additional fresh arugula. Makes 6 side-dish servings.
