  1. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large saucepan. Saute onions until tender, about 10 minutes. Add spinach, basil or watercress (see Cook's Note), and parsley. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in broth and sugar. Simmer, covered, for 30 minutes. Slowly stir in cream.
  3. In a separate pan, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Stir in flour and cook, stirring constantly, until flour loses its raw smell, about 2 minutes. Whisk in a little of the hot soup into the flour mixture, mixing until smooth. Pour roux mixture slowly into the soup, stirring constantly. Bring just to a boil, and remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Serve in warm bowls with a parsley garnish.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You may substitute watercress for the basil, if you prefer.

I totally dig this! This was a breeze to make & very tasty as well (this is my kind of soup, I just love spinich). I topped it off with some fresh grated parmesan cheese & real bacon bits. A ...

This is a great recipe. I made it for my girlfriend on Valintines Day and she loved it. The only thing I changed was the second time I made it with more basil and more spinach. I think it wor...

This was a good recipe, however it does not make very much and it needs to be doubled if you want leftovers or are serving more than 2-3 people.

My husband and I thought this was wonderful! It is very different from the soups I usually make, so I was apprehensive about serving it. I'm used to all kinds of vegetables and meat etc. in my...

I loved this concept, and since I had read the reviews, I loved the end product. I did increase all the vegetables and herbs to double what was written, and only cooked the soup for 10 minutes a...

This was really good! I used half and half and chicken base (from Sam's club) and it was still very good! I'd like to try it with vegetable broth. Will definitely make again. Maybe a dash of...

Was surprised how well everyone liked this. I basically made it thinking only hubby and I would like it, but, the kids loved it too! My broth came out very thin, next time I may add a bit more...

This is one of the best recipes I've tried from this site. I made it for a dinner party and everyone raved about this soup. Excellent!

I love the idea and the name of this a lot more than the recipe as written. The broth is going to be FAR too thin if you make it as written, you will need to double the flour (at least) to get a...
