The soup was a hit. I ended up using frozen veggies and not so much spinach. I also had some wild rice that I went ahead and used. I blended half the soup up with a hand blender, the other half I left whole. We eat the whole pot of soup in one sitting (there are 7 of us). There were no left overs. I think for most families this harty soup would last for two meals. I bet you could freeze it well. Even Jessica my autistic daughter liked it. Thank you for the good soup!
