    My family loved this soup! I did adjust it a bit by using Fat Free Half and Half, Fresh Kale instead of Spinach, and Pepper. I also tripled the recipe to accommodate for my families size as well. I can only imagine how awesome and rich it would have been had I not had to make it less fattening. Definitely a keeper. Great for cold winter days!

    So quick to make. I tripled the recipe to accommodate for the size of our family though. Substituted diced onions for leeks, although I think leeks would have added a more complex dimension. Will try it next time.
