Spinach Soup with Rosemary Croutons

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (38 votes)

Rosemary has a strong flavor, but offers only a subtle hint in this spinach soup. If you like, any seasonal greens you have on hand can be substituted for the spinach.

healthy soup

A healthy tasting soup. Potatoes make it very filling.
I substituted two packages of frozen chopped spinach for fresh. However, the amount of dried rosemary in the soup was too much for my taste. I'd use fresh spinach next time. Be sure to add a touch of nutmeg. Incidentally, I used butter to saute the onions--vegan's can substitute olive oil! Also, I used homemade vegetable stock. Would make again.

good use for spinach

Nutritional Content

Is this correct. When I punched it into Lose It as a recipe I only got 4.8 grams of protein for a 2 cups serving. I am just wondering how you got 7 grams of protein for a 1 cup serving? Thanks!

Butter is not bad for you in moderation, certainly when compared to artificial spreads. Do some research on it.

ESPECIALLY if it's grass-fed, organic butter :)

If this is supposed to be healthy eating, why are you using butter? Why is the sodium content so high?
