Thickened with a mix of cooked oats and vegies, this soup has all the flavor of the original with a fraction of the fat stuff. Low in cholestorol too!

I don't think there was enough flavor in this soup. I sprinkled it with soy parmesan cheese and that really helped. I will try it again with a stronger vegetarian broth and maybe would not blend it next time because it is not appealling looking when it is blended.

This is an easy & healthy recipe but doesn't really have a lot of flavor. I might try it again but would have to add a few additions to perk it up. I've had similar style soups that I loved so I'm a bit disappointed with the way this turned out.
