Vegan Cream of Spinach Soup

The best thing about this soup? It takes less than half an hour from chopping board to table; and is dead easy. Unlike starchy soups that need about 30-40 minutes to cook through, this soup only needs about 20 minutes. Just chop up your ingredients, bring to the boil, simmer, blend and serve. I can’t seem to go past using whole roasted garlic in my soups. It just brings a depth of flavour that is hard to beat.

If you want to make this soup nut-free, stir in a 1/4 cup of rolled oats during cooking – it blends up really well.
