    sugarpea's Note:

    Wonderful comfort food from Rozanne Gold, a favorite cookbook author. This is a creamless creamed soup and it's delicious. It's made thick with potatoes and rich with butter. The color of this soup is stunning.

      A very green soup. I felt it needed a little something, so I added some chopped onions to the potatoes, which I liked a lot. This was more like three servings for me, but I admit that we like big servings of soup. I this will also work well with frozen spinach - might be its best use! Thanks for posting.

      Hi sugarpea...made your Cream of Spinach soup tonight for myself and DH...it was so delicious, I am looking to make some easy recipes as I am recovering from hip surgury, and cannot stand to make big meals as yet...this one just fit the bill...just enough for us, and a little leftover...I served this with a small side salad (prepackaged of course), and a crusty roll...wonderful, I will make this again...thank you Sugarpea for sharing...another winner...KC

      Tastes fab but I did use this recipe as a base and did make changes. I used chicken broth and leftover creamed swiss chard and just realized I forgot to add the butter. I boiled my spuds til done, added the chard then pureed. Returned to pot and thinned with milk. Will definitely use again since I have lots of frozen kale and chard waiting to be used. Thanks
