great recipe! TY for posting! I made some changes however-portion control being one. I dbld ALL the veggies w/the expection of carrots, added 2 cans of S&W NW White Beans, peeled my potatoes, used all chicken broth, NO H20 here, and kept it @ 7 cups. I didn't hv any garlic, so I used Garlic Powder in place thereof. Fabulous w/sourdough rounds!
Reminded me of oxtail soup in consistency and even in taste thanks to the celery. The servings are small. Two adults and a toddler polished this one off in one sitting.
Other than the rice I made this just like the recipe said, I used barley, we like barley you get a goo chew on it and it's a bit better for me than rice. It was very nice and would make it again I particularly liked the choice of herbs and I maybe put in just a wee bit more of them. thank you for posting. made for the diabetic forum.
