Used as a starting point, turned out delicious. Used chive in place of spring onion and cream cheese in place of creme fraiche because that's what I had, didn't ruin it.

Did not have any potatoes so used sweet potatoes instead. The sugar hit was strong and delightful. Thanks for the receipts, have not attempted soup for many years.

Really good soup, tasty and quick. I always keep some in the freezer now. It's our second most favourite soup (curried butternut squash soup takes first place).

Made this today for lunch. I felt it was a bit thin, will add another potato next time. Very tasty though.

I also added 2 cloves of garlic and 2 unseeded red chillies, transformed the soup. Family and friends keep on asking me to make more :-)

Used this recipe as a base as I had no celery or potatoes. Instead I used the same amount of fresh spinach, a small pumpkin, two medium sized leeks. Did pretty much the same with these ingredients and the creme fraiche and it was delicious! Perfect for the autumn.

This is fantastic healthy Spinach soup ! I slightly changed recipe in my taste. I used 4 big sticks celery because I like it and I only put just a tea spoon of crème fraîche when I serve to each bowls, instead of pour half of the container while cooking. It was still delicious. I'm going to cook this more and more as it gets cold. Thanks BBC good food.

Just made this... it was delicious! I didn't have celery, leeks or spring onion so just used onion and some garlic cloves for extra flavour. Also Quick, easy, tasty and healthy- what more could you want!
