Simple GF Vegan Spinach Potage


There are many foods we dislike as kids but as we grow up, suddenly our adult self realizes that we like that food. So was I with spinach pottage. It’s a typical dish they served at the cafeterias in the kindergarden, elementary and high school… Usually on Tuesdays or Wednesdays… I really hated it, but when I had to learn to cook for myself I learned that for one food there’s like a hundred different recipe out there, so why not try spinach potage once? I really believe now, everything depends on the seasoning, and there’s no better seasoning than cooking with love.

Simple GF Vegan Spinach Potage


Prep Time: 05 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
Total time: 35 minutes
Yield: 2 servings
  • 500 g spinach
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2-3 dl veggie broth
  • 2 tbs GF flour
  • 4 tbs olive oil
  • 2-3 dl soy milk
  • to taste salt, pepper, nutmeg
  • 1/2 ts oregano
  • 1/2 ts basil


1. I used frozen spinach and cooked it in a huge pan over medium heat with a little veggie broth, just that much that covers the half of it. Add garlic, salt, pepper, oregano and basil as you cook.
2. Transfer the spinach to a food processor and blend it until you get a smooth cream.
3. In the same pan heat up the oil over medium heat, add the flour and stir frequently until the color becomes golden-brownish. Add the spinach cream to the mix, stir well then whisk in some soy milk until it until smooth. It has to be rather thick, not cream soup like.

I like to serve it with falafel and bread. But fried smoked tofu cubes are also a great pair to it.
