"This soup didn't taste bad, but it was difficult to get past the dark green color when eating it. My 11-month-old daughter loved it, but my 3-year-old son didn't care for it."

"I made this recipe for Taste of Home's low fat cookbook, which used skim milk and evaporated milk, as well as cooking spray to saute the onion and garlic. Great changes. Reduces the calories by more than 2/3! Probably not as rich, but definitely a good soup to make again."
