You have to add milk last... never boil any cream in a soup like this. That is why it has curdled on some people. After everything has cooked down...onions, spinach, spices then add milk and stir in off heat. Not sure how it keeps in fridge for a month with the milk as an ingredient.
This soup was fantastic! I loved it. I used a few handfuls of fresh baby spinach and used the mandoline to finely chop the onion. Next time I will use a little less sugar it was a little sweet. But superb! I also baked a refrigerated pizza crust and melted 1 cup mozz cheese on top and sliced into "dippers." PERFECT!
Wonderful soup! Definitely saute the onions until soft and puree the soup before adding the chopped spinach. Also note that the fresh spinach takes longer than stated to properly wilt.
Our entire family (even the finicky 11 year old) loved it!
Great flavor not so hot in the looks department--this was mostly my fault just letting others know what not to do! I didn't have tomato puree just petite diced; I was going to puree it myself in the food processor but decided since the onions were in big chunks and I like chunky tomato soup I would try it as is. So I dumped in the big can of diced tomatoes and then noticed that the milk was a little curdled. I followed the recipe exactly so this was a little disappointing. After adding the spinach and basil with the curdled milk it looked really nasty and I got the bright idea to throw it all in the blender. It came out looking like baby poo:) I had friends over and they all said the flavor was great I just don't recommend blending the soup all together. Next time I will just deal with the milk chunks:) Wonderful flavor so thanks for the recipe I'm going to keep trying on this one! Update: Made again per recipe except I added the milk last. Still had tiny milk chunks but not bad. Still tasty:)
This is a really delicious recipe! Per other reviewers suggestions I diced the onions finely and sauteed them for a few more minutes. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. It came out sooo yummy. I topped each bowl with freshly grated parmesan and served it with toasted sourdough bread.
This IS a very versatile recipe. I simmered the onion and garlic in water left out the sugar and replaced the milk with rice milk and my family (which includes 5 kids) still loved it. Even my picky son who was so upset that I put spinach in his tomatoe soup. I did ladle out about half the soup into a blender to puree. It gave it a smoother texture overall. We served it w/ croutons on top and it was delish'!
I've never had homemade tomato soup but I'd have to say this was excellent though I made some modifications. I used a 12oz can of tomatoe paste oregano instead of basil (because I was out) and I added a cup of chicken broth to thin it out a bit. It turned out fabulous!
Great soup and very easy. As recommended I finely chopped the onions using my food processor. When sautéing the onions and garlic I added red pepper flakes to add a bit of a kick. Also when I added the last ingredients I added about a cup of chicken broth to thin it out a bit. Will make it again.
I agree with the comment about not adding dairy before the soup is boiled. Using a canned tomato product with such short cooking times results in a soup that tastes very flat and as if it were a poor-quality commercial soup. Something containing spinach onions garlic and tomato should taste much better than this does.
