This is fabulous! I used fresh spinach and homemade chicken stock instead of the water, and omitted the chicken bouillon. Also, I used a hand blender to make it an actual cream soup -- the recipe never says to do this.

I used 2 boxes of frozen spinach which is 20 ounces and I also used 4 bouillon cubes instead of 3. I used fresh garlic instead of garlic powder and I added alot more salt and pepper and I also added some groung cayenne pepper to give it some more flavor. Couldn't be any easier to make, a definite keeper!!!!

This is a wonderfully easy and yummy soup! The thickness is just right. I made as written and added some finely chopped onion to the butter and sauteed it a bit before adding the flour. Thanx for a great fast-fix soup. I'll make this often for cool-weather lunches.

Quick and easy - I used fat free half and half for the milk (because it is richer) and I think next time I will use a little more spinach. Very tasty considering the small amount of effort put into making it.

Delicious. I doubled the flour. Used only 2 cups of milk (2%) and added a can of evaporated milk. Also 1/4 tsp. of cayenne pepper. I used a 10 ounce box of frozen chopped spinach. First I microwaved the spinach with fresh garlic while sauteing the onion in butter. Then I pureed the spinach with a little chicken broth in a blender until creamy. I added the flour and cayenne pepper to the cooked onions and stirred for a minute to get the flour taste out of it. Then whisked in the milks and broth and more seasoning. Fabulous soup. Very versatile. I topped with a little shredded cheddar cheese and a crouton.

If you like creamed spinach, you will love this! I had a large container of fresh spinach leaves, so I chopped them with scissors before cooking. I used 1 cup 1/2 and 1/2 and 2 cups milk. I like making things that are restaurant quality, and this truly is. It's a keeper and will make again.

My family REALLY loved this. But, personally I found it to be a bit bland, perhaps it was the way I was preparing it. Or maybe it's just an aquired taste, as most of my family liked it alot. I will make this again though, as member(s) of my family have requested it. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
