Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small shallot diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 5 ounces baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • ¼ – ½ tsp nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 5 cups chicken broth low sodium if needed
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 4 small yellow potatoes diced
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 large head broccoli cut into florets and then roughly chopped.
  • Pinch red pepper flakes for serving

Instructions

  • In a large pot over medium heat, add the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the shallot and garlic. Saute for 1 minute, or until fragrant.
  • Add in the spinach, flour, onion powder, nutmeg, and salt and pepper. Stir to combine, then stir in the chicken broth, almond milk, and diced potatoes. Bring the soup to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft.
  • Next, stir in the feta cheese, cheddar cheese, and chopped broccoli florets. Cook uncovered for 5-10 minutes, or until the broccoli is soft. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
  • Carefully ladle the soup into a blender and blend until mostly smooth. You may need to do this in batches. Option to use a hand-held immersion blender instead.
  • Return the soup to the soup pot. Option to serve immediately or cover and keep warm over low heat. Store leftover soup in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
