I was feeling quite down today. Something was wrong with me since past few days – I was feeling low and nothing was uplifting my mood. Generally cooking works as a stress-buster for me, but I was actually not stressed, I was depressed and I was not sure ‘why’, which was far more disturbing. Anyways, I tried hard to overcome this phase of ‘mood-off’ and tried to concentrate on television. But alas! It hardly helped. So, what else? I decided to forget about my depressed mood and thought of feeding myself something healthy. I had heard somewhere that healthy food has the power of uplifting our mood, but oh-no… I am again thinking about my mood! Let me stop thinking and go straight to the recipe. 
 
I had read this recipe long back in some book but never thought of giving it a try as I always had a doubt on my mind on how a spinach soup would taste after all the effort. But my god! How wrong I was! Besides being a powerhouse of nutrition, this soup also tastes absolutely awesome and there is no two-way about it! And believe me or not, after having this, I was really feeling good and energetic which made me feel happy! Oh finally!! :)

Serves: 2 Servings
Ingredients
  • Spinach leaves – 4 to 5 bunches
  • Garlic cloves – 5, crushed
  • Onion – 1, medium
  • Bay leaves – 2
  • Black peppercorn – 3 to 4
  • Milk – ½ cup
  • Vegetable stock or water – 1 cup
  • Oil – 1 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • White pepper powder – a pinch
Instructions
  1. Wash the spinach leave thoroughly and chop them roughly.
  2. Fine chop the onions.
  3. Heat oil in a pan or wok.
  4. Add the crushed garlic and saute for a minute.
  5. Add the bay leaves.
  6. Tip in the chopped onions and saute till they turn brown.
  7. Add the chopped spinach leaves and saute it for 3 to 4 minutes.
  8. Add salt to taste – approximately 1 tsp.
  9. Now add the stock or water and bring it to boil. Boil it for 2 minutes.
  10. Now you have to blend the soup. If you have a hand blender, then you can blend the soup directly in the cooking pan. If not, do not worry. Transfer the spinach mixture to a mixer jar and blend it thoroughly using your mixer grinder. Voila!
  11. Transfer the soup back to the cooking pan [If you are using hand blender, then you have to obviously skip this step as your soup is still in the cooking pan itself! :)]
  12. Bring the soup to boil and add milk. Stir well.
  13. Do not boil the soup too much as it thickens gradually once removed from heat.
  14. Add white pepper powder and serve garnished with croutons!

      Hi There! Thanks for visiting my blog! Yeah you can surely substitute milk here. There are few options – you can use coconut milk or soy milk. Even you can try using cauliflower puree – just boil few cauliflower florets in boiling water for 10 minutes or until soft, then blend them in a blender until smooth (you may need to add little water while blending!). Then use this smooth cauliflower puree in the soup. Hope this helps!
