  • Summary

    Puréed vegetable soups can be lean and spare or rich and creamy, spicy or subtle, hot or cold. They can be vegetarian or quite meaty. And much of the cooking time is just for simmering. This spinach soup, with a touch of nutmeg and some cream, is a classic combination, and its flavor justifies that distinction. Featured in: The Minimalist; Blenders Get A Springtime Buzz.
