Ingredients

Prewashed bagged spinach is a great convenience, but it’s a good idea to give the leaves a quick rinse before using to reduce the chance of any contamination. Bunch spinach always needs a thorough wash—it’s typically very sandy and gritty.

Instructions

Sweat shallots in oil in a large pot over medium heat until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and pepper flakes; cook 1 minute. Deglaze pan with wine; simmer until nearly evaporated. Add tomatoes, broth, and basil. Increase heat to medium-high; bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer soup for 10 minutes. Purée soup with a hand blender (or in batches in a standard blender) until smooth. Return soup to the pot and bring it to a simmer. Stir in sugar and vinegar. Just before serving, stir in spinach; season with salt and pepper. Garnish soup with croutons and blue cheese.

Include the juice from the can. It will boost the soup’s flavor. Lightly crush tomatoes with a spoon.

After puréeing, finish the soup with spinach. “Florentine” simply means that spinach is in the recipe.
