Zucchini Spinach Soup

I'm still trying to use up the zucchini from my garden, so I thought I'd make another soup to put in the freezer for the school year. This is a great low-fat one. My husband jokes that this one should be called "cholorphyll soup" because of the bright green color. :) You do have to like spinach to enjoy this soup. I probably prefer my zucchini bisque recipe to this one, but they are very different.



Ingredients:
1 cup chopped onions
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 zucchini, shredded (with peel on)
2 golden Yukon potatoes, peeled and cut in chunks
2 cloves minced garlic
1 quart low sodium chicken stock
1 (10 oz) box chopped spinach, thawed and drained
salt
pepper

Directions:
In a soup pot, heat oil and add onions. Cook until tender.
Add garlic, zucchini and potatoes. Cook over medium heat for about 5-8 minutes.
Add stock. Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, around 30 minutes. Add spinach, cook another 15 minutes. Season to taste.
Puree with immersion blender.
