In 1 1/2-quart saucepan heat margarine until bubbly and hot; add onions, sprinkle with broth mix, and saute until onions are soft.
Sprinkle onions with flour and stir quickly to combine; cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.
Continuing to stir, gradually add milk and bring just to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer, stirring, until mixture thickens; stir in cooked spinach, remove from heat, and let cool slightly.
Pour 2 cups soup into blender container and process at low speed until thoroughly blended, about 30 seconds.
