Let's find out how to prepare spinach cream with and without potatoes, even using frozen spinach.

The cold season invites you to prepare warm and invigorating first courses such as soups and velvety soups. Today we want to offer you one that contains all the flavor of winter: spinach cream. Also known as spinach cream, depending on whether or not you decide to use potatoes, it is excellent to be enjoyed with a light decoration based on Greek yogurt and some croutons.

Our advice is to prepare a cream of spinach and potatoes not only because the latter tend to dampen the flavor of the vegetables, but also because they help make everything creamier. Alternatively, if you prefer a spinach soup without potatoes, you can use courgettes , which are more dietetic but still perfect for obtaining the right consistency.
