Health Highlights


3 tbsp Basil, fresh (chopped)
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1 1/2 cup Chicken broth (stock), low sodium
1 cup Frozen green peas (thawed)
3 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
4 stalk(s) Green onion (chopped)
2 tbsp Lemon juice
1 dash Nutmeg, ground
2 cup Partly skimmed milk, 1% M.F.
1/4 cup Plain yogurt, 2% M.F.
1 potato Potato (baked, peeled and diced)
1 bunch Spinach


In a pot, combine green onions, garlic, potato, nutmeg and broth; bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and boil for 5 to 10 minutes or until potatoes are almost tender.

Meanwhile, trim off tough stems from spinach. Stir spinach and peas into soup; cover and boil for about 5 minutes or until spinach is tender.

Use an immersion blender in the pot, or transfer to a blender in batches, and purée until smooth. Return to pot, if necessary. Add milk and heat over low heat, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes until steaming (do not let boil). Drizzle in lemon juice, stirring constantly; season to taste with pepper.

In a small bowl, stir together yogurt and basil, mint or chives. Ladle soup into warm bowls and add a dollop of herbed yogurt; swirl slightly.
