“Recently we've been dealing with oral surgery that necessitated soft foods for a number of days, and I needed something different to offer, plus I needed something meatless for Lent. I played around with what I had in the pantry, and this is the result. Chicken broth can be used, and I also love to throw in some shredded white cheese in each serving..”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the broth, onion, garlic, carrots, potato, and peppercorns in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.
  2. Add the spinach and continue to simmer until the veggies are tender and the spinach is wilted, about 5 to 10 minutes longer.
  3. Remove from heat. Puree with an immersion blender. If you do not have an immersion blender, puree in batches in a blender. Stir in the milk.
  4. Return to the stove and heat briefly to heat the milk.
  5. Note: I do not add salt, as for me the broth adds more than enough. If you are using homemade broth, salt to taste.
