"healthy and fantastic!"

Reviewed Sep. 27, 2015

"Love this recipe. Was so simple. Had to change some things around. Used tomato soup ( out of tomato sauce),Didn't use mushrooms. Didn't sound good. Used frozen peas and carrots. Added little salt. Will make this again. Like the idea I could substitute items easily."

"Also used V8, but made no other changes. This is good. Really good. And it's good for you too!"

"This is absolutely delicious! Used one other reviewer's suggestion and substituted V8 for the tomato juice, and I used vegetable broth instead of beef broth."

Reviewed Oct. 24, 2012

"This has become my favorite soup. I didn't have tomato juice, so I used watered down tomato sauce--it was DELICIOUS! I also used brown sugar instead of regular. Easy and rewarding. Well, what are you waiting for? Try it for yourself!"

"I have made this recipe a couple of times. I used V8 juice as the base, and it was really good. It was a nice change from just a broth or creamy base. The extra lean ground turkey in it was delicious, and I liked the hunks of veggies. It hits the spot on a cold day!"

"I just used some leftover Turkey from Thanksgiving Day. I didn't drain the Diced Tomatoes. I like my soups with a little more broth. I used Italian Seasoning, instead of Basil. I added Parmesan Cheese. Next time I make it, I think I'll boil some Pasta and then add the soup to it. Very tasty soup. Quick, tasty and easy. How can you loose?"

"I've made this soup twice now, and both times it got rave reviews! Even my kids love it, and I love how easy it goes together."
