1 box frozen chopped spinach
6 medium potatoes cut into 1” cubes
2 medium carrots – grated
1 large onion cut into 1/4” cubes
1 tbsp. vinegar
1 tbsp. sugar
4 large eggs
1 bunch scallions
Small bunch dill
Salt & pepper to taste
Egg mixture with herbs
Sour Cream or plain yogurt
Use a large pot and fill 3/4 ways with water. Immediately throw in cut up potatoes and onions, grated carrots, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer approximately 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, hard boil the eggs and remove the shell. Chop the eggs up. A rough chop, about the same size as the onion. You don’t want to make the pieces too small because they will dissolve into the soup and we don’t want that.
Chop the scallions into 1/4″ pieces and combine with the eggs. Chop up the small bunch of dill and add to the eggs mixture as well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
Break up the frozen chopped spinach into half and place them in the pot with the other ingredients.
Cover and let simmer until the spinach breaks up completely and bring to a boil.
Remove from heat. Add the vinegar and sugar and stir thoroughly.
Top with your egg mixture that you’ve set aside and add a tbsp. of sour cream or yogurt and viola, you have a soup that’s hearty enough to feed your entire family for dinner. Include a side salad and you have a complete meal.
It’s delicious; it’s economical and very nutritious. What else can you ask for?
Feel free to blend all ingredients together and add a tbsp. of cream to make a healthy creamy spinach soup to warm your bellies. Pour some into a thermos and you have soup on the go!
