This delicious soup is full of nutrition, vitamins and is so very warming and comforting on a cold winter’s day. A great immuno booster too for that matter, and best of all, easy to make. (A little tip : This tastes better with fresh spinach)
- ½ kilo of fresh washed spinach or 10 balls of frozen spinach (allowed to thaw)
- 2 tbsps olive oil
- 3 cloves or two roots of garlic
- 1½ tsp minced ginger
- ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
- juice of a lime (or more if you desire)
- a pinch of ground cardamon
- 1 medium onion finely chopped
- pepper & salt
- 900ml vegetable stock or water
Sauté the onion and minced ginger for a minute or so, and then add the garlic, and fry for a further minute. Then add in the chopped spinach, and fry until the spinach has wilted, or, if using the thawed (from frozen) spinach, just mix it through for a minute or so.
Add water or stock, and simmer for about 20-30 minutes.
Allow to cool slightly, and then transfer to food processor and blend, or use an electric hand blender. Add pepper, a good grating of nutmeg, the lime juice (to your taste), and blend for a few seconds. Re-heat and serve hot.
