   In a 5-quart Dutch oven, bring spinach, broth and carrots to a boil. Reduce
 heat; simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat; cool to
 lukewarm. Meanwhile, in a skillet, saute onion and garlic in butter until onion
 is soft, about 5 to 10 minutes. Add flour; cook and stir over low heat for 3-5
 minutes. Add to spinach mixture. Puree in small batches in a blender or food
 processor until finely chopped. Place in a large saucepan.  Add cream, milk,
 pepper and nutmeg; heat through but do not boil.
 
   “During the years I owned and operated a deli, this was one of the most popular
 soups I served,” recalls Marilyn Paradis of Woodburn, Oregon.
