“Popeye's favorite soup! Good hot or cold. Soup also freezes well. Soup should not be pureed or frozen with bacon. Reserve bacon until serving time so it will remain crisp. It is equally as good to serve this soup without pureeing, just add a splash of dry vermouth and lemon juice to each portion just before serving.”

Directions

  1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine the butter or margarine and the onions. Saute for about 3 minutes. Add flour and stir well until mixed. Add broth, raise heat to high and bring to a boil. Whisk mixture to keep flour from clumping.
  2. Add milk, reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the blue cheese and stir until blended, then add the spinach and cook 3 more minutes. Add the cream, bring just to a boil, turn off heat and stir well. Add salt and cayenne pepper to taste.
  3. Allow to cool and puree in a food processor or blender a little at a time. Ladle into individual bowls and sprinkle with the bacon. (Note: to serve cold, omit the bacon and add a little freshly squeezed lemon juice.)

DEELISH! I loved this soup - the only changes I made were to use fresh Spinach. I chose not to puree the end result and was pleased with the texture. I will probably omit the bacon next time. This is a very filling dish on it's own as the blue cheese gives it a very rich flavor.

Wow!! Maybe the best soup I've ever tasted!! I made it exactly as directed, except that I only hd about half of the cheese that the recipe called for (I mis-judged at the grocery store). It still turned out fantastic. I can onlt imagine how rich it would have been with all of the cheese. I will be making this again soon, and would definitely make it for company!

This soup was phenomenal! Tasted like something you would get in a high end restaurant. Very rich and creamy. I followed the recipe almost exactly but instead of thickening with flour I thickened with 1 package of cream cheese (because I'm eating low carb). The blue cheese flavor was mild enough for someone like me that enjoys blue cheese now and then but doesn't totally love it.
