Delicious! The whole family loved it, without the usual “it needs something” comments. I did alter it to suit what was in the fridge: 3/4 c cherry tomatoes (unpeeled) instead of a large tomato, added 1/2 sliced acorn squash, 1/4 c chopped celery instead of celery leaves, plus I threw in several sprigs of fresh thyme, a rosemary branch and 1/4 cup of good sherry. The sherry was especially good. Also in a glass while cooking :)

I loved this soup and only gave it 4 stars because I modified it and didn't stick with the recipe "as written". I added a little orange pepper, garlic with the onion, chopped celery instead of leaves, 1/4 tsp. ground mustard, 1/4 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning, and sprinkled a little cooked bacon on top because I was hungry for bacon. I also skipped the tomato paste. I love recipes like this that allow the cook to interchange vegetables to personal preference and I agree that the turmeric gives it a great flavor and color! I'll keep this one for sure!

Tumeric gives broth a nice flavor.

Very tasty. I love the idea of using my veggies from my garden. Nice and fresh, smells great cooking on the stove.

I made this as directed except that I used chick peas instead of white beans, and I used fresh herbs from my garden for the seasoning. Next time I will make it a little spicier but it was delicious. I like it cold on hot , humid summer days.

Great soup! Used canned petite tomatoes & frozen mixed vegetables in place of of tomato & green beans. Didn't have any turmeric but added minced garlic to onions. Delicious will make again.

Great summer veggie soup! I omitted potatoes and added thin sliced carrots. Then 10 mins before done added baby shell pasta. Delicious!
