Spinach yogurt soup

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 medium Onion, finely
Chopped
1½ tablespoon Butter
2 teaspoons Flour
⅓ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Tarragon
Dash nutmeg
Dash cayenne
(10 oz ea) frozen chopped
Spinach, thawed but NOT
Drained

Garnish

In 3 quart saucepan, saute onion in butter until soft but not brown.

Mix in flour, salt, tarragon, nutmeg and cayenne. Cook until bubbly.

Mix in spinach, then broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes.

Place in blender, about ⅓ at a time (I used a hand blender right in the pot) and puree. Return to saucepan. Add yogurt, whisking until smooth and blended. Heat just until steaming. (Do not boil.) Add salt, if needed. Serve with a lemon slice on top of each serving.
