Just a few simple ingredients create a velvety smooth texture and bright green flavored soup.  Packed with fresh spinach and enhanced with a mint undertone that is not too overpowering- just giving the perfect refreshing lift.  A creamy dairy-free soup that is delicious served chilled or warm.  Tasty as is or serve with a swirl of cream or yogurt or coconut milk.

My weekly CSA box is overflowing with greens.   I love getting a weekly box of surprise produce reminding me to eat my vegetables!  It is the season for spinach around here.  After many spinach salads, I was inspired to create this soup to just pack in the nutrients and use up the surplus growing in my fridge.

I am often surprised at how simple dishes are really the most satisfying.  I highly recommend finding fresh spinach at your farmer’s market.  Maybe you are lucky enough to have an abundance of spinach in your garden!

I love the simplicity of this soup.  The spinach is barely cooked just wilting in the hot broth before blending, keeping the nutrients vibrant.

  1. This sounds like a simple recipe that I could easily make in the Instant Pot. Just got to wait until our mint starts growing in the backyard.

    1. It should work, adjust with salt and maybe onion powder if needed. Have you tried our vegetable broth recipe? How to make FLAVORFUL Vegetable Broth!

  2. I made this and liked it. The potato added a substantial dimension. I live with a vegetarian and was one myself for thirty years. This will be a go to soup.

  3. I’m going to call this my magic soup! Felt a little jaded and under the weather today but decided to use up a big packet of spinach and make this soup. After a tasting I couldn’t resist 2 bowlfuls and it instantly lifted my spirits and could feel my energy return. Followed recipe to the letter and it’s absolutely delicious! Fresh, zingy and vibrant! Thank you 🙏🏻

    1. yay! Yes, to magical spinach soup!! So happy you liked this and even better that you felt revived. Love it.
