    Ordinarily not a fan of recipes with cream soup because they are usually too heavy (sorry Campbell's) but one this is light and delicious! I did use a little less lemon and a little more broth, but otherwise followed the recipe. This one definitely will be in the rotation, and nice enough for company. Would probably add another veggie side next time - but will make this again!

    Very light, fresh tasting and delicious. Only suggestion I would make is to use half as much lemon juice as recipe calls for. Side dishes of corn and mashed potatoes we chose probably not the healthiest but delicious - especially the lemony sauce as gravy for the potatoes.

  • Delicious!

    This recipe is great JUST AS IT IS and is extremely delicious.

    I never knew that lemon and spinach went together so well!

  • Love it!!! w/a few adjustments for our family tastes. :-)

    This is a very easy recipe, and with few ingredients! Just what I need for late evening suppers - and it will rival any restaurant dish!!

    I used portabella mushroom soup instead of the cream of celery. Celery naturally has a lot more sodium than mushrooms, and with a few added sliced fresh portabellas, that much more beneficial. I also used collard greens instead of the baby spinach mostly because it's what I had on hand - but the nutrients are also boosted once again, and a nice red roasted pepper, a quick splash of a sweet red wine, and a dash of parmesan cheese to balance out all the bitter flavors, this dish was a hit the first time offered! Even to my 16 year old!

  • Good recipe, but I have a small change that makes it better!

    I tried this recipe and it was pretty good. But instead of the HR cream of celery soup, I made it again with the HR golden mushroom soup and it was delicious. I would also recommend adding a small can of mushrooms (no salt added).
