Creamy Turnip Soup -Non Dairy

I have not a clue where I got this recipe from, I had this jotted down on a recipe card and have been making it for a while. It is nice and creamy and perfect for a cold rainy day.

1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, pressed
2 tablespoons plus 1/2 teaspoon olive oil, separated
1/2 cup white wine
3 pounds cubed turnip
4 cups GF chicken broth
1 potato diced
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup fresh chopped spinach
Fresh ground pepper, to taste
Salt, to taste

Bring 2 tablespoons olive oil to medium-high heat in a Dutch oven or heavy bottomed pot.
Add the onion and cook until just tender; add garlic and cook for another minute.
Pour in the wine and bring to a boil, simmer until reduced by half.
Add the turnip, potato and broth and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer uncovered, until vegetables are cooked, about 30 minutes, depending on how big the pieces are.
Puree with an immersion blender, or in batches in a blender.
Stir in coconut milk and heat through.
Pour into bowls and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Garnish the soup with the spinach.
