Loaded with vibrant leafy greens, this soup, made with the help of Anyday cookware, promises to invigorate both your taste buds and your well-being. We've skillfully combined spinach with leeks, a milder and sweeter relative of the onion, and added a touch of zesty lemon for a burst of freshness. Whether you savor it hot or chilled, this soup is a year-round delight.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

The Medium Deep Dish


  • 2 cups (150g) leeks (white and light green parts only), thinly sliced
  • ½ cup (60g) potatoes, peeled and diced small
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup (240ml) vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 cup (90g) frozen spinach
  • salt, to taste
  • sour cream, to taste
  • lemon juice, to taste


  1. Combine the leeks, potatoes, garlic, olive oil, and salt in the Anyday dish. Cover with the lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave for 4-5 minutes, or until all vegetables are soft.
  3. Add the stock and spinach. Cover and cook for another 4-5 minutes, or until fully heated.
  4. Using an immersion blender or blender, puree until smooth. If you want a creamier soup, add some sour cream before blending. If needed, add a bit more stock, water, or cream to thin the soup.
  5. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Garnish with fresh tarragon or crispy shallots to level this up a notch.
  • Add some chili flakes for a spicy soup.
  • Try it with kale, swiss chard, or collard greens instead of spinach.

Recipe notes

  • Both Yukon gold or russet potatoes work great in this recipe.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
