"This is a good basic soup, which can be altered a bit to suit your taste. I halved the recipe and added carrots for color. It he red pepper added something special."

"I thought the thyme was way too overpowering. I will make again with poultry seasoning and maybe a dash of thyme. I think it would be great with that substitution."
