2 tablespoons minced dried tomatoes
3/4 pound fresh spinach, stemmed
2 medium yellow onions, peeled
4 cups water
1 cube no-sodium vegetable bouillon
1 1/2 pounds white rose potatoes, peeled, diced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup light sour cream
2 tablespoons dry sherry

  3. Using a blender or food processor purée spinach mixture in several batches; add purée to a large mixing bowl; reserve.
  4. Wipe stockpot clean, add olive oil and heat until oil sizzles. Mince second (reserved) onion; add onion and garlic to saucepan. Sauté for about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Return spinach mixture to stockpot; add potatoes. Cover and bring to a boil; stir, reduce heat and gently simmer for 15 minutes.
  5. Add reconstituted dried tomatoes to stockpot; cover and continue to cook for 15 minutes.
