MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 1, 2013

Tasted great! I think using fresh garlic would add better taste rather than adding garlic powder.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 1, 2012

I thought this soup was great! Made it tonight, and my husband loved it too. Only changes I made were that I used 2 fresh garlic cloves instead of powder, and a cup of vegetable broth. Was very yummy!

We love this recipe. I omit the red pepper flakes for my kids' sakes and use Simply Organics French Onion Dip mix in place of the onion soup mix.
