Mangia Monday and Meatless Creamy Soup

I was looking through the crisper (sometimes called the "rotter"; that's a different story we stole from Jay Worley) and found fresh spinach, carrots and onions, all from last weekends trip to the farmers market.

So I searched the internet world and found a creamy soup to try. Click on link for full recipe. It was very simple with butter and onions, adding some flour, then the carrots, spinach, cream and broth (use homemade or what type you like best) and a little seasoning of nutmeg, salt and pepper. The finishing touch was some orange zest. I used the small food processor to chop the carrots and onions which made preparations very quick.

I am going to try her Lemon Salad Dressing soon, uses lemon juice and we have tons of that (from our ponderosa lemon tree)!
Check out the Iowa Housewife blog, lots of good cooking!
