Creamy Potato Spinach Soup

We have been waiting for the cool weather so we can have soup and more soup.  Both hubby and I love soup.  Almost any soup will appeal to the two of us.  He won't eat asparagus soup but that is the one exception, I can think of.  I plan to make lots of soups, during the cool/cold weather and tonight was the beginning of what I hope will be really great eating.

Creamy Potato Spinach Soup

2 tablespoons. olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
5 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut in 1-inch cubes
16 ounces vegetable broth
2/3 cup whipped cream cheese

2 cups baby spinach, cut into smaller pieces
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
Salt and pepper to taste

In a crock pot, place oil and heat.  Add onions and cook on high for 30 minutes.
Add vegetable broth and potatoes.

Reduce heat to medium and cover and cook for 3 hours.
Use an immersion blender to make as smooth or lumpy, as you like.
Add cream cheese. Stir to combine well.  Use immersion blender again if the cheese does not blend in.  I intended to use sour cream and found, I did not have any.  I had a choice of yogurt or cream cheese and I decided, I wanted a richer soup and went with the cream cheese.

Add chopped spinach and mix it in well so that it cooks quickly.  Leave on for 2 minutes.  
Serve hot. 
Eat and enjoy!
