This is incredibly yummy on a chilly day. There is no need to wilt the spinach separately. The soup is hot enough to just put the spinach right in. It will wilt on its own. This was fantastic. The feta and spinach make this soup.
I found this soup really lacking in flavor. I used lean ground lamb. Maybe it needed the fat inorder for it to have flavor.
This would get 6 stars if there was such a catagory. Short on time, I used 2 cans of Great Northern beans, and 1 3/4c crushed tomatoes. Also, placed the baby spinach in the bottom of the soup bowl, topped with hot soup Which wilted the spinach and added the feta on top. Can't get better than this. Thank you Hardt!!
This was really great! I used 2 cans of navy beans instead of dried, and put everything in the slow cooker for 12 hours. The flavour is wonderful; quite a change from chicken or beef. This recipe is a keeper.
Absolutely fabulous...I used diced lamb chops in place of the ground lamb, and cooked until extremely tender. Fresh thyme was a huge plus...I also used fresh goat's milk feta cheese which added an amazing tangy flavor. Update 06/23/07: After 3 years, my husband and I count down the days until cold weather to make this soup. It is always great the first day, but gets better and better every time you re-heat it. The most important of aspect(s) of this recipe? Always use fresh garlic, herbs, and fresh spinach. You will not be disappointed. I always make a special trip to the 'natural' food store for the goats milk feta cheese also...pure heaven.
Great base recipe, very flexible. Used a few substitutions --canned cannelini beans and a can of diced tomatoes. Also used kale instead of spinach. Browned the lamb, drained the fat and threw everything in the crockpot on high for 3 hours. Topped with goat cheese which melted into the soup completely and gave the broth a tanginess and creaminess that was awesome.
Loved this! We did it with a few minor changes: 1) used leftover roasted leg of lamb (convenient!) and 2) without the tomatoes, since my husband can't have them, but just added more chicken broth. It was delicious! Staying on the regular winter menu.
I'm not keen on beans in soup so I subbed hominy for the beans and left out the feta on top. SO GOOD. This is such a colorful, delicious soup that is just amazing and so easy to put together. I've made this several times, and it always goes fast around my house.
