Reviews for Sweet Potato Minestrone
"I have made something very like this so tried it with these ingredients this time. We liked it but I used Kitchen Table's "unsalted" beef broth to cut down the sodium even more and to give it a little more body. I also added 1 t. of rosemary. We liked it a lot."
"I took this to a gathering and was it good, getting the rec. for a friend now. Yum"
"I thought it was pretty good, but I have several other soup recipes that I like much better. It is a little more filling than regular vegetable soup. My husband likes vegetable soup, only with deer meat in it."
"I thought this would be excellent using Tarragon ( a lemony flavor) instead of Italian spices. Use chicken broth for base."
"I would use tarragon and chicken broth to make this soup."
