Soupy Sunday: Spinach Vegetable Soup

Here's a thick and creamy soup that combines a host of vegetables with herbs for unbeatable flavor. My sister made this for our family Christmas Eve and it is delicious! It is a nice change from the typical vegetable soup. Enjoy!

6 Servings Prep: 15 min. Cook: 25 min.


1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 tablespoon butter
2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) reduced-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth

1-1/2 cups diced peeled potatoes
1 small turnip, peeled and chopped
1 cup chopped carrot
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon each dried thyme, basil and rosemary, crushed
1 teaspoon rubbed sage
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Dash to 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
1 can (14-3/4 ounces) cream-style corn


In a Dutch oven, saute onion and celery in butter until tender. Add
the broth, potatoes, turnip, carrot, green pepper and seasonings.
