A good soup for a weekend lunch, accompanied by tuna sandwiches and crisp radishes! Yogurt gives the soup a tart accent.

Surprisingly delicious! I used olive oil instead of butter and I didn't have any tarragon at home. I also reduced the amount of yogurt by a little bit just to retain the spinach flavor. This recipe's a keeper! Read More

This was easy to make but we didn't really like the flavour. I love spinach but this was not tasty like spinach should be. We did use fresh spinach right out of the garden & not frozen. We won't make it again. Read More

If you can get past the somewhat nasty appearance of this dark green soup it actually tastes pretty good. I used fresh spinach rather than frozen and I substituted sour cream and some leftover cottage cheese for the yogurt. Topped it with a tablespoon of sour cream and some bacon bits. Not bad to go with a sandwich. Read More

Absolutely delicious. And easy! I will be making it again. I made it with sandwiches instead of tomato soup. I like it better than the tomato that I had been making. Read More

reminds me of a healthy cream of spinach soup. i amped it up with a ton of garlic and parmesan. i believe it is a good starting canvas which can be quite delicious once you doctor it up to your taste. i will make it again. with a red garnish such as tomatoes or red peppers this could be a fun holiday dish!

I was drawn to this recipe because I'm a vegetarian and also because I had some plain yogurt I needed to use up. It's a nice soup but perhaps a little on the bland side. Not sure what to kick it up with. Will probably make it again when I have the extra yogurt situation again. Read More
