  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • ½ onion, finely chopped

  • 1 dried bay leaf

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon curry powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • ¼ teaspoon ground coriander

  • 6 potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes

  • 4 cups chicken broth

  • 3 cups water

  • 1 cup chopped canned tomatoes with juice

  • 2 teaspoons garlic and herb seasoning (such as Spike®)

  • 1 (10 ounce) package chopped frozen spinach


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and bay leaf; cook and stir until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add cumin, curry powder, turmeric, and coriander; cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir potatoes, chicken broth, water, canned tomatoes, and seasoning into the pot; bring to a boil.

  2. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are mostly cooked through, about 15 minutes. Add spinach; stir well to combine. Mash some of potatoes to thicken soup. Continue cooking until potatoes are soft, about 10 minutes more.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth if desired.

Substitute 1/2 pound fresh spinach or chard for the frozen spinach if preferred.

Variations: add a can of chickpeas or some cooked chicken during the final phase of cooking.
