Spinach soup.

Recently I've been making this soup at least once a week, but it is so good that I could eat it daily, really. It is a simple and fast soup to make, which also calls for very few ingredients - and what could be better than that?!

Here's how to go about making it:

You need:

- one medim-sized onion
- three cloves of garlic
- frozen spinach
- water
- butter
- flour
- cream
- salt and pepper

1. Thaw frozen spinach. I used about 800 grams since I wanted soup that would last for a few days.

2. Chop the onion and garlic into small pieces.

3. Sauté in a pan on medium heath for 5-10 minutes.

4. When the spinach is thawed, add it to the pan and fill up with water. (Sorry about the blurry photo).

5. While the soup begins to boil melt about 50 grams of butter that you mix with a couple of teaspoons with flour. To that you add a little bit of cream. Add to the soup and stir well.
