Reviews for Summer Vegetable Soup
"I loved this soup and only gave it 4 stars because I modified it and didn't stick with the recipe "as written". I added a little orange pepper, garlic with the onion, chopped celery instead of leaves, 1/4 tsp. ground mustard, 1/4 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning, and sprinkled a little cooked bacon on top because I was hungry for bacon. I also skipped the tomato paste. I love recipes like this that allow the cook to interchange vegetables to personal preference and I agree that the turmeric gives it a great flavor and color! I'll keep this one for sure!"
"Tumeric gives broth a nice flavor."
"Very tasty. I love the idea of using my veggies from my garden. Nice and fresh, smells great cooking on the stove."
"I made this as directed except that I used chick peas instead of white beans, and I used fresh herbs from my garden for the seasoning. Next time I will make it a little spicier but it was delicious. I like it cold on hot , humid summer days."
"Delicious! I made this soup for meatless Monday. I followed the recipe to a T and It was a big hit. I will make this again and again. Thanks!"
"We had this for dinner tonight. Delish!!!!"
"Great soup! Used canned petite tomatoes & frozen mixed vegetables in place of of tomato & green beans. Didn't have any turmeric but added minced garlic to onions. Delicious will make again."
"this looks great and I'm going to try it today ... but I want to know if it will freeze well for enjoying this fall/winter???? I'll upgrade my review after trying the recipe ... :)"
"Great summer veggie soup! I omitted potatoes and added thin sliced carrots. Then 10 mins before done added baby shell pasta. Delicious!"
"Seriously anybody who doesn't read how people change/add/delete things from a recipe is losing out I get a lot of good ideas from people who share their changes they made. "
"I haven't tried the recipe. It looks good though."
" To become a good cook, you have to learn to expand on recipes to make them your own. Try it! The purpose of reviews is not to just say whether or not it was good, but to share ideas of how to modify/expand it. "
"the soup was good. I always alter a recipe and love the reviews where people say what they have done to add to it. "
"I made this yesterday, with a few alterations. I used canned whole tomatoes, in place of the fresh tomato/tomato paste...and chopped carrots in place of potato. Also added a bit of curry powder. Excellent soup! I fixed hot garlic bread and a cheese plate....cole slaw as a salad..."
