Artichoke and Spinach Soup (Low Carb/Vegetarian)

I created this soup because I love the spinach artichoke dip that people tend to make for parties.  It is really rich so it should probably be served as a starter for meals.

Serves 4


16 ounces of Vegetable Broth

 14oz cans of artichoke bottoms; chopped

16oz package of pre washed spinach

1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil

1 Tablespoon of Butter

1 small onion; chopped

3 cloves of garlic; minced

1/2  cup of Half and Half

1 cup shredded provolone cheese

3 ounces of Welsh Cheddar Cheese (or Dubliners)


*Saute Onion and Garlic in oil and butter for 3 minutes.

Add Spinach and continue to sauté until spinach is wilted (about 5 minutes)

Add Veggie Broth and cook until just boiling

Remove from heat and blend with submersion blender (a tool I can't live without)

Add cheese, half and half and blend until mixed and smooth

Return to heat just until heated through

garnish with a little parmesan cheese or bread crumbs if not worried about carb count
