"I have made this recipe twice, and I love it. There are several things I did the second time around that made it better (all gathered from other reviewers) 1. I used about 1 lb of fresh spinach and ..." See moreblended the spinach mixture. 2. Used 2 cups milk & 1 cup heavy cream 3. Used fresh onion and garlic 4. Added a dash of Celery Salt, Cayanne Pepper, nutmeg, and thyme 5. Mixed in about 1/4 cup Parmasean Cheese. Most of these ideas came from other reviews. Combining them all together makes a really good soup (and not bland at all)."
"Following the recipe as is I would only rate this 3 out of 5 stars. Do the following and its definately a 5 star recipe. I thought it was too plain. Take out the water and bouilloon; use chicken br..." See moreoth instead (better & fuller flavor) Use 2 cups of half & half and 1 cup of milk. Substitute 1/4 cup fresh minced onion instead of dried. Add 2 cup of shredded swiss cheese. 1. Saute onion in butter in large saucepan until onion is soft. 2. Add 1/4 c flour, wisk with butter and onion until well mixed. Pour in chicken broth, wisking rapidly to ensure everything mixes well. 3. Add spinach. Bring to a boil. 4. Add cream & milk. 5. Add cheese, stirring constantly until all cheese is melted. 6. Season to taste. (I also added two drops of roasted habinaro sauce which has a really nice flavor without making it spicy. I hate black pepper so I use other peppers) This soup was very filling and delicious."
"OMG, this is so good. I have made this soup sooo many times! I've use just broccoli; 1/2 broccoli 1/2 spinach; combo of broccoli and cauliflower; cauliflower, broccoli and spinach. I have used chopped..." See more, whole and fresh spinach and had good results each time. I don't really measure, it's just what I have on hand. Never fails and always comes out good. Usually when I add broccoli to the spinach or cauliflower it just tastes like cream of broccoli. Also, I usually put 1/2 cup frozen chopped onions in with the veggies and don't use the minced onions at the end. I also use a hand blender and make the soup nice and creamy. It's such a quick and easy soup. I always have the stuff on hand so I can whip it up in a moments notice."
