Jewish Recipes --> Recipes --> Soups --> Leek and Spinach Soup

Leek and Spinach Soup

One of my favorite vegetables, leeks, are available all year long but seem to be at their tender best in the spring and summer.  When cooked, they have a soft onion-garlic quality that enhances other vegetables.  I think they're the secret ingredient to making deep-flavored soups.

Make ahead / storage This soup can be stored covered in the refrigerator up to 3 days, or frozen for 1 month.  Stir in cream just before serving, if using. -- notes from the Author

Recipe Ingredients:
  • Oliver Oil
  • 2 larger leeks, white and light green parts only (save the dark green tops for stock), chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 medium shallot, chopped
  • 1 medium fennel bulb, trimmed, quartered, cored, and chopped
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc
  • 5 Cups Vegetable Stock ( page 17) or water
  • 1 Cup rough chopped fresh spinach
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream (optional)

Heat a large saucepan or stockpot over medium heat and lightly coat the bottom of the pan with olive oil. Slowly cook the leeks, garlic, shallot, and fennel with salt and pepper to taste, until the vegetables are tender and fragrant, about 15 minutes.

Add the wine and continue cooking until the will evaporates.   Add the stock and simmer until the vegetables are completely soft, about 15 minutes.  Remover the soup from the heat and allow it too cool.

Add the spinach leaves, parsley and thyme, and puree the soup in a blender or food processor in batches until it is smooth.  Return the soup to the pan and add the lemon juice.  Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.  Simmer the soup 15 minutes longer, to allow the flavors to meld.  Stir in the cream just before serving.  If using.
