Chilled Spicy Spinach Soup

Tammy Brownlow


Perfect for summer this soup is chilled with a surprising spicy kick. The red potatoes thicken and add a rich creamy texture. This would be a perfect first course for a grilled juicy steak dinner.

With a crusty hot roll or a light salad it makes for a nice light refreshing lunch or dinner.
