  • 8 cups low-sodium vegetable or chicken stock
  • 2 medium baking potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 4 leeks, cut into chunks up to the dark green part
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and left whole
  • 2 (10 oz.) packs spinach
  • 1 bunch asparagus, woody ends trimmed off
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1-2 tablespoons mild curry powder (optional)

Step by Step:

  1. Toss the potato and leek chunks into the stock.
  2. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes, then add in the rest of the vegetables and red pepper flakes.
  3. Bring back to a simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes, until everything is soft but still nicely green.
  4. Puree with an emersion blender or transfer to a blender or food processor and process until smooth.
  5. Taste for seasoning, then add in curry powder to taste. Season generously, because when served cold, the flavors are muted.
  6. Allow to sit at room temperature for 2 hours to cool, then store in the fridge.
