This is very good! I did make a few adjustments, but I don't think any of them drastically altered the flavor. I left the potato and carrot unpeeled for nutrients, which left the texture of the soup not entirely smooth. This did not bother me, but if you have texture issues, I would recommend peeling. I also added a clove of garlic to the veggies and omitted the garlic and onion powders. Finally, I added a couple of dashes each of Pickapeppa and hot sauce. This soup actualy tastes unhealthy (very rich), but it is obviously very healthy!
