    I couldn't make this as it had way too much sodium. If the canned soups weren't included but fresh vegetables some of the salt could be left out and it would be healthier.

    I disliked the after taste the onion soup left.

    This is great, however if you add a can of condenced cheddar cheese soup in place of the cream of onion soup, it is a little richer.
