MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 27, 2013

I've been making this soup since the day I got the magazine issue that it originally came in. It's awesome. I use Better than Bouillon Paste instead of regular granules (less salt, more flavor). I also add a little extra onion. A few shakes or oregano and thyme are the only things I add. Everybody I've ever fixed this soup for absolutely loves it!

This was very good soup! I put the tomato veg. mixture in the blender after it cooked, to make a smoother soup. Also added a little thyme, basil, and cumin. So warming and tasty!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 6, 2010

I added 2 cans of stewed tomatoes as I didn't think it was tomatoey enough. I didn't peel the tomatoes, I will next time.
