Spinach - Artichoke Soup 2

One more recipe for Spinach Artichoke soup. This saves me the search when I get home. I like that even though this recipe calls for 2 pounds of butter, it still claims to be 1 serving. Get hungry, people.

Title: Spinach - Artichoke Soup
Yield: 1 Servings


2 lb butter; unsalted
1 lb yellow onion; medium diced
4 c flour
1 ga half and half
2 ts white pepper
3 tb tabasco sauce
6 oz chicken base
3 c sour cream
2 c packed parmasean cheese
1 as needed vit.d milk;
-(approx 1 gallon)
1 lb spinach; cooked
14 c canned artichokes
2 tb balsamic vinegar
1 tb sherry


1. In a large stock pot add butter & melt, then add onion and saute for 5

2. add flour & stir well for 8 minutes. (this will be a thick paste) (roux)

3. You must cook this soup on a low-medium heat from this point on or you
will burn it, also make sure to stir very often.

4. add half n half, sour cream, salt, pepper, tabasco, & chicken base. Keep

5. add milk as needed as it thickens (it should be same consistency of a
cream soup when finished)

6. Now add your parmasean cheese, keep cooking on low, when the "starchy"
taste from the flour is gone the soup is finished. This will take approx. 2

7. To finish soup add vinegar and sherry , adjust seasoning as necessary.
