Very good and very easy. Make sure you chop up the spinach. I got lazy and didn't. You know you can't get a whole cooked leaf of spinach on a teaspoon? My wife made me wear a lobster bib. Read More

I made this completely vegetarian using veggie rather than chicken broth and omitting the shrimp. Also I added minced garlic and used white onion instead of green as well as a couple Russet potatoes chopped up relatively small. The nutmeg really brings this recipe together. For extra-awesome taste try adding a slice of White American cheese during the simmer. Doing so turned this into my favorite soup ever and really brought it to a new level of deliciousness! Read More

Wow we loved this! I used veg broth and subbed a mix of coconut milk and almond milk for milk and I used olive oil instead of butter. The flavor combo was just excellent. Easy to make too. I like it with lots of fresh-ground pepper. This is a new favorite! Read More

Fabulous soup that can be a whole meal. I made alterations to make it gluten free by using a Gluten free cream soup mix I make and have at hand. The shrimp really are a touch of genius. Spinach and shellfish go so well together. Thank you for this soup that's towards the top if my soup repetoire. Read More
