Irish Spinach Soup with Green Onions
A quick recipe adapted from Marianne Mays, County Wicklow.

  • 5 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup unbleached flour
  • 3 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1-1/2 bunches spinach (leaves only), washed and chopped
  • 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint

Melt 4 Tbsp. butter in a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add green onions and saute until just tender, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the onion mixture; whisk in the milk. Whisk until mixture comes to a boil and thickens, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat.

Melt 1 Tbsp. butter over medium heat. Add spinach and toss until wilted and tender but still bright green. Add spinach to milk mixture. Puree in batches in blender. Return to pan and heat over low flame until warm. Season with nutmeg, salt and pepper. Ladle into bowls and garnish with fresh mint.
