MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 25, 2014

One of my absolute favorite soups--I always add the kale, and I use jalapeno sausage as well.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 8, 2014

I followed the recipe as written but added a little over a cup of leftover diced ham. I liked it more as I got to the end of my serving. It was very filling and healthy. Can't say it's my favorite TOH soup recipe, though. Not sure why; maybe next time I make this I will add sausage as others have done. It needs a little something to balance out the spices.

Followed recipe except used fresh tarragon and thyme. Didn't really measure it. The thyme flavor was distinctive, but I grew to love it. I accidentally boiled it a little too long at first, bit not a problem. Great healthy recipe. Want to share with friends

I omitted the dill weed. It was so delicious! Even my 14-month-old son gobbled it up!
