"This IS a great soup for a potluck! It makes a huge amount. I like that it is loaded with so many vegetables. I only gave it 4 stars because the taste was a bit bland, but overall its a good recipe for a crowd.

Update: I played around with this recipe--the bland taste was really bugging me. I added red cayenne pepper, more black pepper and garlic salt. It really helped."
