Cream of Spinach Soup – Not So Good

I saw this recipe and became so excited. If you know me or have read any of this blog, you are aware of my deep-rooted love for raw spinach. Well, I still love spinach, but this soup not so much. I think I have a few ideas about where I went wrong.

Raw Cream of Spinach Soup

20140212-124139.jpg

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup soaked and drained Cashews (I used raw almonds)
  • 1 1/4 cup raw non-dairy Milk or Water
  • 1/4 tsp Cumin
  • 1 clove of Garlic
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg (I think this is a bit too much)
  • 3 cups packed Spinach

Directions:

  • Food process the nuts, milk, spices, and garlic until creamy
  • Save a couple tbsp of the cream as a finishing topping
  • Add spinach and process until smooth
  • Enjoy or try and enjoy

What I did wrong:

  • too much nutmeg
  • the original recipe called for cashews but I wasn’t going to pay $7 at Kroger for a couple handfuls (those would likely have given it more of a creamy consistency and stronger flavor)
  • i tasted it cold and it was decent, but I was in the mood for hot soup so I heated it on the stove. This was a mistake as the flavors became weirder and the consistency was meh. So, overall this wasn’t my favorite. I still feel like it has potential; I would need to work out a few kinks to really like this recipe though. Maybe you have a successful cream of spinach soup recipe you could share or new ideas about what I could have done differently?
