"I tried this for the first time to take to a friend who had just had surgery. Since it made so much, I kept half and gave her half. She called later to rave about how good it was. I substituted a 16 oz. bag of frozen mixed veggies for the beans and carrots. It is so thick that it is more like a stew. So I might add a can of broth the next time. I will make this again."

"btw... I would like to add that I have changed this soup up in different ways to suit my taste and used different foods and spices that I have on hand. This is great as is or good base to get going if you want to get creative."

"I thought this was good, but not outstanding. The broth was tasty, but since it was so thick, more like a stew than a soup, I added another couple cups of water with about a tablespoon of beef broth. So flavor was really good, but I think the texture of the hashbrowns made it a little funky for my taste."
