      I found this soup to be very bland and WAY TOO sweet. I left out the maple syrup altogether, and then tried to up the flavor by adding ginger, a little clove, and chicken stock instead of vegetable stock. It was still too sweet. Would probably make a nice small appetizer portion but for a meal the flavors are just not appropriate.

      Love this recipe. Thanks for uploading it as its easier to look on instead of getting out my old Cooking Light cook books. Only thing different that I do is that I use chicken stock. Also, I didn't have apple juice the last time so I just used canned pear juice.

      Wonderful and healthy soup. Surprisingly easy too. Some people may find the maple flavor a little too strong, but I love maple so it was great to me. I followed the directions exactly except for leaving out the celery and using instant chicken stock instead of vegetable broth. I'll be making this one again. Made for My 3 Chefs. UPDATE: Made again for family dinner party. This time used homemade veggie stock and only 2 tbsp maple. Still great and liked by all.
