      Outstanding!! The combination of yogurt and spinach totally did it for me in this recipe, and the green onions add awesome flavour as well, so preferably don't substitute them! After adding the spinach, I simmered the soup covered for about five minutes, because I didn't want it to dry out. Even so, this made a hearty, chunky soup which made a wonderful one-dish dinner for me tonight! Thanks for this one, it's a keeper!

      I loved it! What a great combination of flavors, the yogurt and spinach go so well together! I didn't have rice so I broke up some somen noodles and it added a nice consistency to the soup. Next time I will add chicken.

      This soup is fascinating -- we really enjoyed it! Followed the recipe exactly as written, which was very easy, and found it had a tender, delicate flavor and a wonderful mouth feel, very creamy and rich while still being very light. It's good cold, too, thanks to the fact that it is really quite low in fat. Yum! A definite keeper.
