Great soup, especially with garden tomatoes! Took to luncheon. Next time we had a luncheon everyone requested I bring it again! Very flavorful!

This soup is amazing! So full of flavor. It is warming me up on this cold day! Only change was that I used a white onion, because that was all I had left on hand.

This is so yummy! Added some minced garlic and a bay leaf (make sure to remove before adding spinach or you might not find it!). Everything we used was low sodium and we did not add the salt it called for but the garlic added a flavor boost. Very heart healthy recipe!

Absolutely fantastic!!! The first time I made, I used 4 "extra large' bouillon cubes. It has such a deep, rich flavor, but was a bit salty. Made the second time and used regular sized ones, and it was still delicious, just not as 'beefy.' I also added zucchini the second time and it got a bit soft, but was still good. Great recipe! Makes a ton too!
