Posted in : Every Day Basics, Light Bites, Light Lunch, Soup, Vegetarian on by : Bryony Campion Tags: , , ,

This wholesome tasty soup is a great low FODMAP winter warmer.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp garlic infused oil (what is this?)
  • 6 potatoes, peeled & diced
  • 1 cup chives, chopped – reserve a few for garnish (grow your own)
  • 2 cups spinach (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 litre boiling water
  • 1 tbsp miso paste
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of ground cayenne

Method

  1. In a large soup pot over medium heat add the garlic infused oil. Add the potato cubes and chives and sauté for 4-5 minutes stirring frequently.
  2. Add boiling water, miso paste, pepper and nutmeg. Bring soup to a simmer for 20 to 25 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
  3. Add the spinach and leave on the heat until just wilted.
  4. Remove from heat, and blend with a stick blender or transfer to a blender jug if necessary. When blending if the soup is too thick add a small amount of water at a time until the desired thickness is achieved. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.
  5. Garnish soup with a few chopped chives and a pinch of cayenne; serve immediately or cool quickly and keep in a covered jar for up to three days in the fridge.
