Spinach Romano Soup and Bruschetta Biscuits with Feta

Bruschetta Biscuits 60

What a wondrous meal this turned out to be for us.  I mean, I love spinach and I love Romano cheese, so the soup couldn’t be bad, right?!

To go along with the soup I knew I wanted to make some sort of bread.  My mom had given me the recipe for the bruschetta biscuits with feta and they sounded just like something that would satisfy my tastebuds.

Soups perfect sidekick:  Bruschetta Biscuits with Feta Cheese

Bruschetta Biscuits 001

Santa had set out this soup mix with my stocking for Christmas.  All I had to do was add 6 cups of water to it and cook on the stovetop.  I also added in half of a chopped onion.  It wasn’t quite thick enough for my liking, so I added in a little cornstarch too.  I am more of a chowder girl!

The recipe called for kalamata olives, but I put black olives in half of the biscuits for my husband.

Is it weird that I don’t like tomatoes but that I will eat sun-dried tomatoes?

And I don’t like bruschetta because it has fresh chunky tomatoes in it, but I love these bruschetta biscuits!

Is there a veggie you don’t like?

    Yes, you are CRAZY that you don’t like tomatoes!! I’m seriously addicted to those things and eat at least one or two a day in the summer. Anyway, that bruschetta recipe sounds fabulous! I love anything with olives, sundried tomatoes, spinach and basil…greek flavors at their finest! Yum 🙂

  2. I used to HATE tomatoes…hate them to an extent i would scrape the sauce off of my pizza! Those biscuits dooo sound amazing though! and not too difficult. I’ve never made anything from scratch. Maybe now’s the time!

  3. Hmmmm, I’m not the biggest fan of beets. Especially pickled ones. :/

    I totally understand your tomato thing! I can eat tomatoes if they are in something, but just not on their own. Cooked is preferred. 🙂

    I love sun dried tomatoes but I’m not fond of tomatoes either for some reason. I’m really picky when it comes to them, the texture kind of throws me off lol Those biscuits look delish! 😀

  5. You sold me on those bruschetta biscuits! They look amazing!

  6. simplyshaka says:

    I love your biscuit idea–very creative!

    I need to see where I can find that soup, it looks delicious and I love anything with spinach and cheese.

    I pretty much like all veggies but one I cannot get on board with is brussel sprouts.

  7. Jess says:

    That cheese looks SO good!!

  8. That looks delicious! If I were making the biscuits, ours would be with olives but sans feta for J (he doesn’t like goat cheese for some reason) 🙂

    I didn’t used to like tomatoes or ketchup. Now I am an addict 🙂
    That looks so good… like the perfect dinner!
