"Used 2 cans of beans, home made veggie broth, bay leaves and a diced tomato. Pretty good. Next time will substitute swiss chard or kale for spinach."

"I also used 2 cans of beans. Aside from that, I followed this to a T. Kale may be a better choice for this soup (I think it holds up better) but the spinach was fine the night off. Just made leftovers not quite as tasty as I would have liked."

"Do not make this recipe! I followed it to a T & it was horrible! I finally added an extra can of beans as it was so runny. My stomach hurts it was so bad."
