I’ve made mostly sweet treats for Halloween this year, so I wanted to add something savory to the list. This “Witches’ Brew” is a soup made from blending spinach, potatoes, onions, garlic, and Gruyere cheese in a vegetable broth. Evan is cutting more molars, so this soup was a nice way to easily add some vegetables to his diet while he is refusing most solids. I used a cookie cutter to cut little ghosts out of extra cheese.
I used an immersion blender to puree the soup after the potatoes were tender. It is not needed, but definitely easier than transferring the soup to a blender or food processor. If you need to transfer the soup, be very careful as any splatter will be hot.
