MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 2, 2013

"This soup is delicious! I add a little garlic because I love it. I add ground peppercorns to taste instead of using whole ones. I top the soup when serving with shredded reduced fat cheddar to get cheeseburger soup. It is awesome and my family loves it."

"I've been making this for the past 4 years and it never fails to please me! I make exactly as the recipe reads except I use regular barley and add it when the vegetables are simmering for 45 minutes. I also use my tea infuser ball to hold the peppercorns instead of cheesecloth."
