Suggested as a lunch in Jody Vassallo little ideas diabetes cookbook . Definately heartwarmer on a cold day or night when you only want a light meal.

This soup is good. I believe the cheesy toasts would be excellent with it but was not able to make them since we are gluten/yeast free. Saying that I used broken brown rice spaghetti pasta. I omitted the bell pepper & green beans (I thought I had some frozen, which I may have preferred to omit anyway), I used homemade chicken stock and followed the rest. It makes 6-8 servings for sure even with the omitted ingredients. I did have to simmer way longer than 5 minutes to get the carrots soft but that was good because it melded the flavours more. Made for MAKE MY RECIPE~Tag Game/ Christmas 2010.
