Our spinach soup recipes will enable you to prepare an excellent starter or light lunch. All the successful recipes are stored in the Recipe Directory. The fresher the spinach the better the end result. Unlike most of my recipes I don't think there is a great degree of flexibility with this soup. I've tried experimenting with the ingredients without much success. You can substitute the shallots for onion and add a clove or half clove of garlic but it's hard to improve on this formula if you want a delicious spinach soup with a full authentic taste. The recipe will serve four people. Whenever possible I make double the amount of soup I need and freeze any extra to use later either as soup or as the base of a sauce or vegetable stock.

You really turned me onto spinach soup, but tell your readers to pick their spinach with care, young fresh baby spinach leaves are best, the more mature (everlasting) spinach will have the effect of making the flavour more coarse.
"Dear Buster and Friends,
Nice to meet you all at Sandgate. I forgot to mention that your spinach soup recipe is a fab way to use up the leaves that are partially damaged through pests or weather but only use the young leaves, the fresher the leaves the better the taste - you can supplement with kale and/or watercress if you don't have enough spinach
