How to make vegetarian spinach artichoke soup

Print this recipe
When it starts getting colder in the evenings, all I can think about is soup. The recipe below makes a great vegetarian meal—and I can easily whip it up after getting home from a long day at work. Frozen artichoke hearts are a godsend.
I serve this with hunks of crusty bread for dipping and Parmesan cheese for grating over the top. It's one of my favorite meals, so I make it often. I haven't heard any complaints from the family yet, so I know it's a winner.

Vegetarian Spinach Artichoke Soup
4
10 minutes
25 minutes
35 minutes
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 onion, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
Kosher salt
freshly ground pepper
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups vegetable broth
1 9-ounce package frozen artichoke hearts, thawed
1 bay leaf
Zest of 1/2 lemon
3 ounces baby spinach
1 cup fresh parsley leaves
½ cup sour cream
Melt the butter in a Dutch oven or stockpot set over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the celery, season with salt and pepper, and cook until the celery is softened, about 5 minutes more. Stir in the thyme, garlic, and flour and cook, stirring, for 2 more minutes, until the vegetables are coated with the flour.
Add the broth, artichokes, bay leaf, and lemon zest and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for about 15 minutes, until the vegetables are very tender. Stir in the spinach and parsley and cook until it is wilted.
Either with an immersion blender in the pot or in a countertop blender (in batches), puree the soup. Return to the pot if necessary and then stir in the sour cream. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Serve hot.

Roasting the cabbage adds an extra layer of flavor to this seemingly boring vegetable. The caramelization creates an amazing flavor that simmered or raw cabbage simply lacks.
