    busyozmum's Note:

    This soup is so thick you'll only need some of your favourite crusty bread to make it a complete meal. This makes a huge amount of soup so get out your big soup pot.

      A very delicious soup. This recipe is almost like mine. When I hear someone's sick, I send a quart container of this with some corn muffins to them. They always say it helps their recovery. Now that we are facing flu season, my soup pot will be working overtime (lol!) It's just the thing for a flu sensitive stomach. All the nutrients are there. I thought I was the only person who put rutabegas (swedes) in my soup. Because of dietary restrictions, I omitted the soup mix, (too much sodium) and pumpkin, instead I used diced onions, green beans, zuchinni and yellow squash. A great soup! For sick and well alikle. This is a good soup, period.

      Absolutely fabulous soup recipe. It is full of such nutritious veggies and chicken. This makes a large pot of hearty soup. This lends itself easily to substitutions without changing the overall basis of the recipe. I did make some substitutions: I omitted the swede (rutabaga) and added an extra zucchini. I subbed 2 peeled and chopped sweet potatoes instead of the pumpkin. For the dry soup mix, I combined about 1 cup of lentils and 1/4 cup of barley. I could not find either the chicken or vegetable stock powders so this is what worked for me: 2 T. chicken bouillon granules mixed into 6 cups of hot water ; 4 cups of vegetable broth. (Still 10 cups liquid total). I will make this recipe over and over. It's fantastic!! Added note - I used 5 skinless chicken legs and I thought it was the perfect amount.
