“One of my favourite lunch soups! Great mild taste, features good-for-you spinach and quick to make; you can make the soup while the eggs are boiling. This soup also seems to be the #1 opinion divider in the country - about half the people (like me!) love it, while the other half (like my husband!) think it's a complete abomination. I think it's just due to the spinach though. ;-)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt margarine in a pot, add flour and mix well with a whisk.
  2. Add about half of the milk and whisk vigurously to get rid of any lumps. Keep whisking until the mixture thickens and begins to boil.
  3. Add the rest of the milk and the spinach, whisk. Allow to boil for a few minutes. Keep stirring often as milk-based soups stick to the bottom of the pot easily!
  4. Add salt, sugar and white pepper, mix.
  5. Divide between soup bowls; peel boiled eggs, halve them, and place two egg halves on top of each bowl of soup.
