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.

I made a couple substitutions for this one. It is now one of our favorite soups. I started by makeing a traditional vegetable stock w/ carrots, celery, onion, and smashed garlic. I like the orange color with the green of the spinach. I also used barley instead of rice. It holds up better in soup. We only use brown rice so the barley also speeds up the cook time. I subbed about 1 tbl. sp. mild curry and 1 tbl. sp. paprika for the tumeric. The spice was added before the water while the trinity was cooking.

I followed the recipe as closely as I could, and the end result was... not so good. I, however, have never had spinach soup before; maybe this is what's it's supposed to taste like and I just don't like it... (Even though I do like spinach...)
