    Celebration of Spring Soup with Spinach, Chives, and Tarragon

    Ingredients:

    • 4 Tbsp. butter
    • 1 cup onions, diced
    • 3 cups potatoes, peeled, large diced
    • 4 Cups chicken or vegetable broth or water
    • 2 ½ Cups spinach leaves, chopped
    • 4 Tbsp. Chives, chopped
    • 2 Tbsp. Tarragon, chopped
    • 1 Cup heavy cream, optional
    • To taste salt and black pepper

    Instructions:

    • In a heavy bottom soup pan, add the butter and onions. Cook over medium heat for about three minutes or until softened. Do not brown.
    • Add the potatoes and broth. Cover and bring to a gentle boil. Cook for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are very tender.
    • Puree the soup until desired consistency using a blender, stick mixer or food processor. Put the soup back in the pot and bring back up to a gentle boil. If the soup is too thick for your liking, add more broth or water and reheat. If soup is too thin for your liking, bring to a gentle boil and allow to reduce without a cover for a few minutes.
    • To finish, stir in the spinach, chives, tarragon and heavy cream if desired. Season soup to taste with salt and black pepper. Enjoy!
