A yummy, spicy healthy spinach soup recipe.

Spinach soup that I have eaten every day this month. It is so amazingly creamy (without any cream) yet light. Thanks to raw cashews. 

Flavorful and spicy with cumin, coriander, cayenne and turmeric.

Here’s the thing, I’m not a salad person <– wierdo

I don’t mind munching on a bowl of salad occasionally, but I prefer my veggies in cooked form, not sure why.

This dairy free spinach soup comes together in about 10 minutes (plus cooling time) –

  • Toast cumin seeds in oil
  • Saute cashews, onion and garlic
  • Saute spinach and spices
  • Add chicken stock, cook for a minute and let cool
  • Blend until creamy

Ladle into bowls and enjoy.

  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 30 raw cashews


Additional ingredients


  • Heat vegetable oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. 
  • When hot, add cumin seeds and let toast. Add ingredients_1, saute for about 2 minutes until onions are translucent. 
  • Add ingredients_2, saute for 1-2 minutes, until spinach is wilted and spices are toasted. 
  • Add stock and let it come to a boil and continue to cook for 1 minute. Take off heat and let cool. Pour mixture into a blender, add salt (I added 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon salt ), blend until creamy and smooth. 
  • Pour into bowls and serve.


Salt depends on the kind of chicken stock used.  I used 33% less sodium chicken stock and 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon salt was perfect.
