  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 2 Garlic Cloves finely chopped
  • ½ Cup sliced Onions
  • 2 bunches Spinach (Palak) washed and stems removed, approx 260 grams
  • ½ Teaspoon Salt
  • ½ Teaspoon Pepper
  • ½ Cup Water divided
  • ½ Cup Milk
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Cream


  • Heat oil in a soup or a stockpot over medium flame. Add garlic and sliced onions and saute till the onions soften, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add spinach, salt, bayleaf and ¼ cup of water. Cover and cook till the spinach wilts, approx 2-3 minutes. Turn off the flame and allow it to cool.
  • Remove the bayleaf and transfer to the blender. Add the remaining ¼ cup of water and blend till smooth.
  • Pour the blended spinach mixture back into the pot and bring to a simmer over low flame. Add milk and pepper and simmer for 2 more minutes. Turn off the heat.
  • Transfer to soup bowls, top with cream and serve. Serve hot!



  • Spinach should be cooked just till it wilts to retain its flavour, freshness & nutritive value 
  • Make sure to let the soup cool completely before blending to avoid splatter
  • Use fresh spinach leaves for best results; although if you’re using frozen leaves, they can be added directly to the pot until they thaw and soften before blending
  • Replace regular milk with coconut milk for a vegan version of the soup. You could also add potatoes and/or leeks for a thicker consistency. 
  • Stored in an airtight container, leftover spinach soup should keep well in the fridge for up to 3 days.
