Eye Healthy Spinach Soup
4 quarts water
1 medium carrot
8 large potatoes
1 stalk celery
1 small parsnip
2 bunches fresh spinach
1 large green pepper
2 large yellow onion
1 bunch parsley
dill and salt and pepper to taste
Peel and cut carrots into sections about 1/2 inch to 1 inch in length. Then peel and cut the potato into pieces about the same size.
Heat the butter in a soup pot over a low-to-medium heat and add the onion, garlic and carrots. Cook for about 2-3 minutes while stirring continuously. Then add the wine and cook for another couple of minutes. Next, add the stock and the potato. Raise the heat to medium-high and bring everything to a boil. Then lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
Remove the pot from the stove and puree everything in a blender (you may need to do this in a few batches depending on the size of your blender). Then put the pureed soup back in the pot and bring to a simmer. You can add additional broth to then the soup if necessary.
Season with a bit of salt and white pepper and enjoy.
