Super good! There was not much broth just in case you are looking for a "brothy" soup. It needs a little bit more flavor. I can't think of what could be added but I would definitely make it again. Great ingredients. Do not be scared of the cloves, nice addition.
Perfect for a winter day. Terrific aroma and taste! Easy, healthy, and economical. I did sub a small can of tomato sauce for the tomato paste after finding out that I had no tomato paste but otherwise made as posted. This would be also good with diced tomatoes. Made for Everyday is a Holiday.
This was the perfect bowl of soup to enjoy on a snow day! I was pretty faithful to the recipe, except I used a 6 oz. can of tomato paste, and 4 cups of low-sodium beef broth and 2 cups of water. I also did not use the lemon wedges. A bowl of this is quite filling. Thanks for sharing. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.
