Creamy Spinach Soup. vegan, glutenfree

Print Friendly and PDF


This is the soup hubbs asks for again and again!. Simple, quick and perfect with any meal.

Serve it with some garlic rolls or pita bread, some gf chickpea crackers or celery.

























There is a mild spice from a little Kashmiri Garam masala, which contains Black cumin, Cassia, Coriander, Cardamom, Clove and Tellicherry Black Pepper and some cream from the cashews. This soup gets ready in 15 minutes with just one boil. No cooking for hours. You can also serve it raw. I dont digest most things completely raw, so a little heat does the trick for me.

Hubbs is still on vacation till the end of the year.. So it still is vacation time for me too.. Just sneaking in a short post..:) How are you all celebrating the new year!
