Delicious soup...very hearty. I added the cauliflower and soy sauce as suggested and it really adds to the flavor. A real hit with the whole family!

Another excellent soup from Uncle Bill. The only alteration I made was omitting the potato (to reduce added carbs). The broth tastes so good without soy sauce, but when Uncle Bill adds a suggestion, I listen. Cautiously I added 1 Tb. soy sauce, and it does provide a more robust flavor. Another reviewer suggested adding sausage, which does sound tasty too--this recipe seems like it would lend itself well to whatever you'd like to throw in. Either way, it's a sure winner. We're so blessed that Bill shares his recipes with us.

Excellent!!! I made a few changes, mostly that I used two cans of black beans and rather than water I pureed about 1/4 to 1/3 of them with broth to make for a thicker soup. Also added a jalapeno rather than hot sauce. Otherwise, I followed the directions and will certainly be making this very tasty and filling soup again and again!

Excellent healthy, hearty, and delicious meal. Only thing I changed was to cook the black beans in the crock pot until nearly done before adding the other ingredients. Looking forward to freezing some leftovers for future quick reheating. Thanks for posting this recipe.

I made this today and my whole family enjoyed it! Very good. I added some oregano, paprika, chili pepper and salt. This is a great tasting soup with a good dose of veggies.

This sounds perfect! I'm going to make this tomorrow, and the only thing I'm going to add is a tablespoon of fennel seeds. I just can't get enough of them lately, and I think it'll really help sweeten up the soup! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

What a great, hearty, healthy soup! Thanks, Uncle Bill! I added some andouille sausage which spiced it up alittle more. This will be a favorite soup for supper and it's great reheated.Thanks, Carole in Orlando
