  • 400 ml chicken stock
  • 350 g spinach leaves
  • handful of mint leaves
  • glug of olive oil
  • 4 spring onions chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons of cream plus more for serving
  • bonus ingredient: pinch of sumac


  1. Fry the chopped spring onions and garlic in a pot until soft
  2. Add the washed spinach leaves. Put the lid on and wait until they are wilted
  3. Pour over 500 ml good quality chicken stock. I find the taste of chicken stock richer and more interesting, but obviously vegetable stock would work fine as well
  4. Add the mint leaves and blend with a stick blender or in a food processor until smooth.
  5. Stir in 2 tablespoons of cream and add salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Notes

Serve with more cream drizzled on top and a pinch of sumac.
