    I have made this many times, sometimes following the ingredients exactly, sometimes substituting if I don't have something on hand. Not a big escorole fan so I double the spinach. Also double the chili peppers as I like a little more heat. The only thing I found was a little off was the cooking time. I didn't find :10 was enough. I like my soup a little less crunchy. But other than that it is fabulous!

    I put practically every veggie I had in the fridge in this soup. Mushrooms, califlower, leeks - in addition to the veggies listed. YUMMY! So satisfying, and I cannot believe it is ZERO points. I garnished my bowl with a Tbsp of freshly grated parmesan (1 point) and it was absolutely perfect. I'll be making this again!

    I made this soup a week ago, and froze it in 1 cup servings. It freezes well, and the one cup size is convinient for packing in lunches to take to work. Even my DH who is not on WW, enjoyed it. He said it smelled so good, that he couldn't not try it! Thanks for posting.
