Unreal -- in a good way! I increased the shallot and garlic considerably because I like both. Also chopped up 1/2 a Jalapeno with the seeds, because I like some heat, and chopped up several leaves of fresh basil and included both extras in the shallot and garlic step. Drained the fire-roasted diced tomatoes (Pastene) and reserved the liquid. I roasted them in a roasting pan in a 375 degree oven for 20 minutes before adding them. I incorporated the reserved liquid and used just two cups of an unsalted vegetable stock. Used Pastene peeled and ground tomatoes because that is what I had. I chose organic baby spinach and did not bother removing stems -- turns out fine. Superb results! I will be serving this in my restaurant with a grilled cheese or grilled ham and cheese. Would also pair well with a pull apart garlic and onion bread that is simple easy to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This soup was DELICIOUS! I did change a few things based on others' reviews and also some of my own modifications and I was very pleased with the end result. I used kale instead of spinach, fire roasted diced tomatoes, added carrots and white beans, and also added red chili flakes, nutritional yeast, and just a touch of maple syrup (to cut the acidity). I also upped the amount of veg stalk by about ¼ cup since I added a couple things. The end result was fantastic. I will definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent and easy recipe. Made this on a camping trip. I took the suggestions from others and used more garlic, added crushed red pepper and white beans. Came out very good. Glad I read the reviews before making this. Thanks for the add-ons. Served it with grilled cheese and italian turkey sausages. Thanks, Rachael for another great go to recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is an oldie but goody. Changed it up a bit. Had a bunch of fresh scallions on hand so I used those instead of shallots. Instead of canned tomatoes I used some very ripe ones in my fridge. Also used a jar of a good quality marinara sauce or you can make your own. Added a little hot pepper flakes for a little kick. Before adding the spinach, I used my immersion blender and got everything nice and smooth. Added the spinach and let it heat through till the greens melted.I gave it 4 stars since I did a little revamping. But the foundation was great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this last night and I really liked it. It was a bit acidic for my taste so next time I may add some sugar and see what that does to it. I thought the garlic was just right, but I did need to add quite a bit of salt and pepper to get it to my liking. I had the leftovers for lunch today and I think they tasted even better today than they did last night. I made a soup similar to this from my Moosewood cookbook but I think I liked this one a bit better. The spinach was definitely a welcomed addition. Next time I will use all crushed tomatoes because I liked the texture of it without the diced tomatoes better. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love garlic so I double or quadruple the garlic, and add up to a tablespoon of cayenne pepper to give it a kick. item not reviewed by moderator and published
If you love having soup or want a soup and sandwich this is a great one! I made it just the way the recipe calls. item not reviewed by moderator and published
With this ingresient list I have to say I was a little skeptical of how this would turn out, but it ended up being pretty good and really healthy. We served this with Venetian Panino from the show Everyday Italian and let me just say,... Super meal! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wrote the recipe down and took it to the store. Somehow I had written Leeks instead of Shallots. I have made it over and over for family and friends since I saw the show a couple of years ago. But when my friend went to FoodNetwork.com she called and told me that the recipe called for shallots. When I made a batch for Christmas presents this year...everyone said...keep the leeks...! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this w/home-grown tomatoes (about 4 large) instead of canned, and used frozen chopped spinach. Added a can of canellini beans, dried basil, red pepper flakes. Topped w/parmesan cheese and croutons, it tastes like something out of Olive Garden! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this on a weeknight, and it was wonderful! My husband and I loved it. I only used 1 tablespoon of olive oil instead of 2, and I think next time I will chop up extra garlic and put it in. This will be a great soup to play around with. Thanks for the great recipe, Rachael! item not reviewed by moderator and published
People will never guess how quickly you put this soup together - it tastes like it was simmering for several hours. First made this soup two years ago and have made it many, many times since. It's a great recipe to pull out on a chilly night! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this soup three or four different ways already. I added beans one time, added salmon another. Comes out great every time...just love it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This can be used as a pasta sauce as well. Very easy to make and a good way to impress some guests. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The soup was very good especially with some warm whole wheat bread. I suggest putting a little sugar in it to tone down the accidity. Would be a great soup to add extra veggies! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this according to the recipe and liked it, but I added a few things that this time that really brightened the flavor. I put in a little crushed red pepper with the shallots and garlic, and this gave an undertone of spice without the heat. I also added mushrooms, dried oregano, and basil and it was delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I had a craving for tomato soup and this was the only recipe I could find that I had all the ingredients on time and didn't take a lot of time. It turned out great though I did add my own modifications which is typical for me. I added extra garlic, some crushed red pepper for some added kick, a dollop of sour cream for a little extra creaminess, italian seasoning and some freshly grated parmesan cheese. I loved the flavor and it surely satisfied my craving. Much better than running to the store for a can of Campbells tomato soup. This recipe is a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The flavor is fantastic. Only when we were done with cooking the soup, we added about 10oz. of heavy cream and pureed with a hand blender, so it was more like a bisque. Another night I poured it over bow tie pasta - outstanding! Very kid friendly! item not reviewed by moderator and published

this is one of the best soups I ever made. I am the only member of my family that is a vegetarian, but my family liked the soup so much, they didn't care it had no meat. the only bad thing was chopping the shallots, but the payoff was worth it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I enjoyed this soup and it was even tastier the following day! I added some light sour cream to my soup for a little creamier flavor. Delicious! Needed a little more salt than what Rachel called for. However, a very hearty meal that fills you up and it great for those who are looking for low-fat and heart healthy recipes! I'll definitely make this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This soup makes a great base for adding beans, veggies, spices, whatever you want. I added garbanzo and black beans, which made it hardier and more filling. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was ok. Tasted allot like a thin tomato sauce with some spinach, which is not what I was looking for. The tomatos buried the spinach flavor. I will make with less tomatos and use chicken broth thickened with a bit of cornstarch next time to see if we like it better. That should bring out the flavor of the spinch more. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Simple, easy and fast! I originally made it because we already had everything in the kitchen, but will definitely make it again! Also, it's easy to dress it up for guests (we just added some parmesan and homemade garlic croutons - yum!) I think we got about 6 servings out of this recipe, which is fine because the leftovers froze well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is super easy to fix. It has a nice flavor to it, I had to resist from adding to it (Where are the spices) anyway it is perfect the way it is. This could be used to put over pasta, or you could ad shrimp to it as well. I really did like it and will cook again... item not reviewed by moderator and published

This soup packs a bounty of nutrition in a small bowl... not something that typically gets three young boys excited; but they LOVE this stuff! We are going to experiment with some variations: mexican spices with fresh cilantro and peppers, mild white beans or fresh green beans and maybe even some small shrimp. Have fun with it and let the kids put it together: it's that simple... item not reviewed by moderator and published

Though there is NO dairy in this recipe (I'm allergic - so this is wonderful), this recipe comes out with a creamy-like texture. I referred this recipe to a friend who is also allergic to dairy and she, too, loved it. She also found it be very creamy. Highly recommend it. Another tip, if your family doesn't like the chunks, through it in to a blender and puree it and then serve. item not reviewed by moderator and published
