Broccoli and Baby Spinach Soup

Broccoli and Baby Spinach Soup

We just started getting our baby spinach in!  To celebrate, here is a simple and warming soup for those cold winter nights.


1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 medium onions, chopped

2 celery ribs, chopped

1 large garlic clove, chopped

1/2 teaspoon ground nutme

about 2 pounds 4 ounces broccoli, spears separated and stalks peeled and thinly sliced

2/3 cup rolled oats

8 cups vegetable broth

3 cups water

salt and pepper

1 cup baby spinach


Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large pot. Saute onions and celery until they soften. Add garlic and nutmeg and saute about 30 seconds more. Add broccoli, oats, broth, water, and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until broccoli is tender. During the last couple of minutes, add spinach. Use an immersion blender or regular blender to puree the soup. Check again for seasoning.
