Simple, quick, and full of flavor oh and wonderful variety of texture. Admittedly I deviated from the recipe by caramelizing the onions. Looking forward to trying this recipe again using a more authentic Spanish chorizo instead of the cheap packaged stuff I used, also want to try the turnip greens instead the the spinach; I can see how the soup would benefit from their tang.

This was great! My husband has to eat gluten free and this was very easy. I had to make a few substitutions to use what I had in my cabinet. Instead of white beans I used red and I didn't have a turnip so I used 2 potatoes. I also added a half of a clove of garlic because well, I love garlic. All the favors came together very nicely and we also have a ton leftover. I'll be making this all the time now!

I'd let the potatoes/turnips/onions simmer for a little longer on a lower heat to thicken the water a bit
