Brian's Spinach Mushroom Soup

Submitted by: SCHWINNER!

Introduction

We threw this together one night when we needed to use up some mushrooms in the fridge! Super low cal and very tasty! We threw this together one night when we needed to use up some mushrooms in the fridge! Super low cal and very tasty!

Ingredients

    4 c. water
    1 large portabella cap
    2 c. chopped white mushrooms
    5 oz. frozen spinach (1/2 package)
    1/2 large onion, chopped
    3 cloves garlic
    2 tbsp. butter
    rosemary
    salt
    pepper
    cayenne pepper (optional)
    garnish: Laughing Cow cheese or fresh grated parmesan (not in calorie count)

Directions

Melt butter in a large pot over medium high heat. Add chopped onion and garlic, cook until browned.

Meanwhile, roughly chop all mushrooms (you can use any kind of fresh mushroom) and add to onions and garlic. Add 4 c. water, bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover.

Thaw spinach and squeeze out excess water. Add to soup pot. Season to taste with salt, pepper, rosemary, and red pepper (for a little kick).

Allow to simmer for at least 20 minutes to allow mushrooms to soften and flavors to meld. Serve topped with fresh grated parmesan cheese or a wedge of Laughing Cow light cheese.

Makes 4 servings.

  • Made like recipe but without the portobello because I didn't have one and I added one (1) Tbspn Minor's Beef Base to the 4 cup of water for taste. Seasoned to taste as in recipe. Good basic recipe easy to vary, a keeper. - 10/20/12

  • This is great, not only the recipe but the freedom to add your own "leftovers". I was also looking for a way to clear out some ingredients from my fridge! I also added asparagus, carrots, and cooked minute rice ( at the end). A few extra mild spices and it is a new fav. for me!!! Thanks!! - 8/25/10
