MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 27, 2013

"I love this soup!! So easy and I think it has a lot of flavor. I leave out the dill also. It's not really a main course soup, goes well with a grilled cheese sandwich."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 4, 2011

"This soup is so yummy. It's even better the next day when the spices have a chance to meld into the soup. This is a keeper!"
