With Indian Spices, this quick, fragrant, warm and creamy soup makes a great lunch with a side of bread and butter. (Low carb bread for those of us following Trim Healthy Mama). It is a thin, almost drinkable soup, but it is delicious!
Of course, this is a large recipe. You may cut it in half or further.
If you are following THM this would be an S.
Creamy Spinach Soup
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 onions, chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
Seeds from 8 green cardamom pods, optional
4-14.5 ounce cans chicken broth
12 cups fresh spinach
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8-1/4 teaspoon cayenne or red pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 13.5 ounce can coconut milk
1 teaspoon glucomannan
Sauté the onions, garlic and cardamom seeds in the coconut oil. Add the chicken broth, spinach and spices. Bring to a boil and let simmer a bit till the spinach is cooked and wilted. Transfer to a blender (I used a vitamix) by batches and blend till smooth and creamy. Add the can of coconut milk and glucomannan to a partial batch and blend. Return all to the pot and bring back to a boil.
If you are not dairy free, you could always add some cream in place of the coconut milk. Maybe a cup?
