What variations can you make to this recipe?
You can make the soup dairy-free by adding a non-dairy cream. If you replace cream with any non-dairy milk, there will be a difference in the final texture of the espuma. It is because of the high-fat content of the cream. However, using coconut cream may make the flavor of coconut more prominent and may mask the real flavor of spinach.
Feel free to experiment with your favorite herbs in the soup, either fresh or dried. Celery salt, parsley, chives, and ground cumin make a good complement with the spinach flavor.
You can saute diced shallots, chopped onion, sliced leeks, or scallions for a more flavorful treat.
Add a little bit of sour cream or Greek yogurt for a twist of tangy creaminess.
