Here is another easy, but nutritious way to get your nutrients including iron. This cream of spinach soup is easy to make and very tasty.  So, if you want to enjoy your spinach a different way than just a blended smoothie, then this soup will definitely help with that, plus it is creamy.  Try it nuh!


  • 1 cup spinach.
  • 2 cloves garlic.
  • ½ of a small onion (you can add more if preferred).
  • 1 Tbsp cooking oil/butter
  • Black pepper (to taste).
  • A pinch of salt (to taste).
  • 1/2  cup of milk (I used unsweetened almond milk).
  • Powdered seasonings (Optional):
    • Paprika
    • Garlic
    • Garlic


  • In a hot Frying Pan, add the cooking oil.
  • Add seasonings.
  • Add Spinach and stir for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove pot from heat and let cool a bit.
  • Add the cooked spinach from the pot to the blender.
  • Add milk and blend until smooth.
  • Add back the same pot to the stove over low heat.
  • Strain the blended mixture and add to the pot.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add powdered seasonings to taste (optional).
  • Let simmer for a minute or less.
  • Serve and enjoy!


This can be enjoyed with garlic bread, toasted bread or on its own.  You can add more milk if desired. I also added a little bit of butter to the blended soup. This is a really tasty and pleasant way to get your nutrients, especially iron if you want to break from a regular smoothie.  Also, you can add other seasonings as desired. This makes for about 2 servings.

Ingredient Spotlight!

~ Garlic~

Garlic (Allium sativum), is a vegetable that is widely used for flavouring when cooking. However, due to its potent nutrients, many have used it for medicinal purposes.

One raw clove of garlic is said to be packed with nutrients such as fiber, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and manganese among others. It also reportedly contained vitamins such as vitamins A, C, B1 (thiamin), B6 (pyridoxine), folic acid, and Vitamin K, among others.

Due to its many potent nutrients, garlic is reportedly able to help boost the immune system and prevent colds and the flu virus.

You can add garlic to meat, vegetable, and soup dishes.  You can even have it raw if desired.

To good health!
