This soup was not good! It was bland and watery; I added 2 chicken bouillon cubes to the broth and 1-2 cups diced ham. It was disappointing. I even added a can of canellini beans to see if that helped--it didn't. I love Taste of Home and find it's recipes excellent as a general rule. This is the first negative review I've ever written on a TOH recipe, but I must be honest in my assessment. I won't make this soup again.
I really liked this soup. I did add a little beef base for flavor and used a combination of sweet Hungarian paprika and the hotter variety. This recipe is extremely economical and uses ingredients you have in your pantry, so I will definitely be making this again.
I used Pam instead of butter to saute the onions. Cut the salt down to 1 teaspoon and paprika to 1/2 teaspoon. Still a little spicy and maybe too spicy yet for some. I used about 3/4 c. of flour mixed with part of the water to thicken. This cut out the fat, cholesterol and lowered the sodium. Very tasty & much better for heart patients. We love this recipe.
