Spinach Soup with Mint and Crunchy Potato Topping

This is my very first time referencing Berlin-based Zucker & Jagdwurst. I don't think it will be the last.


We're killing it on the iron front two days in a row now. A bowl should get you about 30-35% of your daily recommended value (DRV), which is close to what you get in a steak. And fiber? Oh we got fiber -- roughly 50% your DRV.


Something to look out for: potassium. Potassium-rich diets are not great for a lot of people managing chronic kidney disorders. Always check nutritional facts on your own and see if a recipe works for you.

Ingredients

1 lb #potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes

1 onion, chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

5 tbsp vegetable oil

14 oz #spinach

10 oz #peas

1 tsp dried mint

4 cups veggie broth

2/3 cup coconut milk, additional for garnish

Salt, pepper, and ground nutmeg


Instructions

Heat 3 tbsp oil in a big pot and brown 1/2 of the coarsely chopped potatoes. Add onion and garlic and heat for another 2 minutes. Season well with salt and pepper.


Add peas, mint leaves, and veggie stock. Mix well and bring to the boil.


Add spinach leaves and let simmer for 10 - 15 minutes until potatoes are soft.


Transfer to a blender. Blend until smooth, add coconut milk, stir well and season again with salt, pepper and ground nutmeg. Return soup to heat, and maintain the minimum temperature required for keeping soup hot.
