You don't need to love spinach to enjoy this soup, but you do need to love garlic. This hearty soup is great at warming up chilled bodies on cold days.

Love this soup! It is delicious and the garlic is healing. I've made it with beef, chicken and veggie broth and it is wonderful with any of the three. I never add any more salt, but I do usually add a bit more garlic. Overall a staple in our household. Especially when someone isn't feeling well. Thanks! Read More

I burned the rice (not enough water for the rice) and 8 cups of beef stock was way too much. It looks nice on the original picture and I was curious (love soups). Read More

BEST soup I have made in a long time! Was thinking chicken broth would be preferable to beef broth but no. Also used fire roasted tomatoes in the preparation which I think helped. Salt and pepper liberally. YUM! :) Read More
