Creamy Spinach Soup
October 11, 2017 Nicola Barnes

Spinach is a fantastic source of folic acid, keep a bag in the fridge as a regular ‘go to’ for your pregnancy menus, especially in your first trimester.

This delicious spinach soup is the perfect pregnancy lunch, packed full of essential prenatal vitamins and takes only a few minutes to prepare. Serve it with walnut bread and cheese.

Homemade chicken or vegetable stock improves the flavour but use a good quality ready prepared stockpot for a speed and convenience.

Ingredients

25g of butter
1 large onion, finely chopped
Clove of garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons of chopped chives
900 ml of vegetable or chicken stock
700g fresh spinach
100 gm cream cheese
Freshly grated nutmeg to taste

Method

  1. Melt the butter in the saucepan and gently fry the chopped onion and garlic until softened.
  2. Add the chopped chives, spinach and stock.
  3. Bring to the boil, turn down the heat and simmer for 5 minutes until the spinach has wilted.
  4. Blend until smooth.
  5. Stir in the cream cheese and the freshly grated nutmeg.
  6. Simmer gently for a few more minutes to let the flavours develop and serve
