"After reading all of the positive reviews I am not sure what went wrong, even though I followed the recipe as printed. It is definitely a very healthy soup which is why I gave it two stars but my batch was totally lacking in flavor. I did add some salt to see whether that would enhance the taste and it didn't seem to do much good. Not sure what I would change if I were to make it again."

"Simple and tasty. I made it with boxed chopped tomatoes to avoid having to dig the tomato paste out of the can, and loved it!"

"This is one of our favorite vegetarian dishes. I do add about 1 teaspoon of salt and pepper to taste. Also I add more water if it is gets to thick."
