Points: 3 weight watchers pointsplus
Servings: 4 servings
Serving Size: 1.5 cups
Nutritional Info: 138.1 calories, 4.3 g of fat, 11.2 g of carbohydrates, 4 g of fiber, 15.7 g of protein

Ingredients
10 oz fresh or frozen spinach
1.5 cups of artichoke hearts (I used thawed frozen artichokes, but a 14 oz can would also work)
1 cup non fat Greek yogurt
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cups non fat chicken or vegetable broth
fresh ground black pepper
Salt

Instructions
1. Saute the onions in a large dutch oven, sprayed with non fat cooking spray, until they begin to become translucent and fragrant. Add the garlic and continue to saute for 1-2 minutes. Add the spinach and artichoke hearts and saute for an additional 2 minutes until spinach begins to wilt.

2. Add 3 cups of vegetable or chicken broth and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 10 minutes.

3. Stir in the Greek yogurt and Parmesan cheese. Let cool for 5-10 minutes and add to a blender. Blend to desired consistency.

Tip: This soup keeps well so consider making a double batch and freezing the remaining soup. It also tastes even better the next day.
