Spinach Broccoli Cream Soup | Soup Recipes

I am trying to include Spinach to my diet atleast twice or thrice a week. But I get bored with the regular Spinach with dhal curry. So I am trying many ways to include spinach which is interesting too. Spinach chapathi, Spinach basil pesto, Spinach chutney are few of the many ways I try them. The recent addition to the list is this Spinach Broccoli cream soup.
Ingredients:
Serves -2
Fresh baby spinach - 2 cups - tightly packed
Broccoli - (fresh/frozen) - 1 cup - steamed
Chopped onions - 1/2 cup
Garlic - 1 clove - halved
Vegetable stock - 2 cups - Homemade or Store-bought
Cooking cream - 1/4 cup (optional)
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp or to taste
Salt  - to taste
Olive oil - 1 tbsp
Method:
In a wide sauce-pan heat olive oil. Saute the onions and garlic until it becomes soft. Add the steamed broccoli and fry for a minute. Add the spinach and saute until it wilts. Add pepper and the vegetable stock. Allow it to boil and remove from heat. When it is slightly cool, puree in a blender in batches or using an immersion blender. Return the puree to the sauce-pan and heat slightly. Add the cream and whisk until it is well mixed. Add salt to taste but remember the store-bought stock may already have salt in it. Remove from heat and serve warm or cold. It tastes good either way.
Sending this healthy and tasty soup to Healthy Morsels - Pregnancy and also to CC-Spring Seasonal Food.
