something for supper

I had a whole bag of spinach in my fridge and I wanted to make something interesting!

"Cream" of spinach and mushroom soup:
4 cups spinach
1/2 cup mushrooms (chopped)
1/2 onion (chopped)
1 tbs margarine or olive oil
1 pkg soft tofu cut into small squares
1 clove garlic
1 cup soy milk
1 cup water
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
pinch of flour
1 carrot (grated
pepper - optional

Steam spinach in a double boiler until tender (5 min. max) set aside. In a small sauce pan saute onions until transparent, add mushrooms and garlic, saute until mushrooms become tender. Combine spinach and mushroom mixture in a food processor or blender, blend until smooth. Add tofu to the mixture and blend until the mixture has become smooth. Pour water and milk into a medium sized pot, put the heat on medium and add the spinach mixture, stir and heat adding the chili powder and salt. Add the pinch of flour for a thicker soup. Top the soup with grated carrot and a dash of pepper.
