Potato Florentine Soup

This is a lovely soup from The Moosewood New Classics. I made it pretty much as written, but I think it has possibilities for other additions - maybe some carrots, or some ham or bacon - but it's very nice as is.

    I love this soup and make it often, I sub kale or chard for spinach because I always have those in my garden and I add ground sausage if I feel like some meat. Can't go wrong with a Moosewood soup recipe, that's the bottom line!

    This is pretty easy and quick for a soup. I used half the spinach bcz of the kids and pureed everything together. They still didn't eat much of it, probably bcz of the "stuff" in it. I will probably adopt a couple of ideas from this soup to incorporate into my regular potato soup. I did like it. Thanks!
