    I also used a tspn.of dill and garlic.
    1 review seemed concerned about using corn starch since the potao has enough starch.The corn starch is for thickening and is a different kind of starch,by the time it's diluted in the 6 cps. of liquid it's miniscule.splurge and get fresh spinach,much better. - 2/13/09

    This is a great recipe to use with other vegetables besides spinach. It would make a nice cream carrot soup as well. - 8/3/08

    Good, but is very time intensive. I added 1T of Tasbasco, parsley, and used 2c. low sodium chicken broth and 2c. low sodium vegetable broth instead of the water. Also, 2c. nonfat milk rather than 2%.
    Doesn't seem worth the effort. - 7/27/08

    I really liked this soup! Even though it looks like a bubbling swamp. I used a box of frozen spinach, and 6 oz of chicken breast. I made it without the cornstarch. And it made 8 cups. So I figured it out as 8 servings. 106 calories. And, great on the nutrition. Thanks. - 7/22/08

    Wow what a delicious soup! I didnt add milk as i like my soups thick - instead added a few dolops of low fat sour cream also added broccolli the first time as i was running low on spinach! Preferred using less spinach version. A hit with the whole family so i have to make a couple of batches a week - 9/11/11

    I think Potato is starchy enough so I wouldn't add the corn starch. Without Chicken either and vegetable bouillon rather than chicken for a Vegetarian Version. Thanks for sharing! :-) - 1/31/09

    Pretty good. I added some Tabasco to give it a bit of zing. I also doubled the corn starch for added thickness. I might make it again but with more changes. The real rest will be how it tastes tomorrow. :) - 1/24/08

  • I added a packet of (Idahoan) Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes because it added extra flavoring plus gave it the thickness I wanted. - 9/29/13

  • I tweeked the process a bit, but think it turned out similar. I used garam masala, ginger, and a little cayenne pepper, which is what made it amazing. I just broke my jaw- mouth wired shut- and so am on a liquid-only diet. I think this may be the best 'liquid' I've had all week! - 12/27/12

  • Amazing idea to blend the chicken. I used a big bag of fresh spinach and homemade stock and did not need to add dairy to cream it. I also added 3 garlic cloves. Yum! - 12/3/11

  • I used frozen spinach cause that's all I had, add 2 more potatoes, 1 clove of garlic (huge fan), 1tsp oregano, 1/2tsp basil and sauteed the onion and spinach in 1 tsp olive oil before adding the other ingredients. I omitted the chicken and corn starch simply because I didn't have either.Yummy! - 7/14/11

    I will use low sodium, fat free chicken broth to lower the sodium in this recipe. I will also use red potatoes and leave the skins on for 2 reasons - my family loves the skins (on red potatoes they are tender and yummy and that is where a lot of the vitamins and nutruents are. Thanks for the recipe! - 7/24/08
