Very good! Next time I might add peas and corn... I also used 6 bouillion cubes instead of Granules.. I also made it without celery and onion since I have picky eaters.. I added onion powder though.

PS..I only had beef bouillon cubes and not the stated granules. So I binged it at it said that 1 cube = 1 tsp. So I used 6 cubes for this particular recipe. Hope this helps.

Very good, and very quick and easy. I put diced green peppers instead of carrots and celery and it was delicious.

I love this tasty, warming soup. It's almost as good as a similar recipe my grandmother made when I was a child, and that's saying a lot!
