Sort By :
"I followed the recipe except added fresh garlic rather than the powder as was suggested, but still this soup did not have the wow factor I look for; it just didn't work for us."
"Tasted great! I think using fresh garlic would add better taste rather than adding garlic powder."
"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."
"Nothing is more comforting than a hot bowl of homemade soup....This was easy and is very tasty. Mmm Mmm Good, as they say."
