All the good things in a soup. Easy to put together before work. Needs a zing though. More spice, add tabasco as someone else mentioned? I'll try again.
This is a great basic soup. As someone else suggested, adding white or red kidney beans makes it more hardy. And if you want a little more zing to it add some Worcestershire Sauce to taste rather than more pepper. I substitute tomato juice for some of the liquid too.
Simple, good and filling. I needed to add a little balsamic vinegar to mine to liven it up a bit. I think I like to cook the veggies lightly first when I do crock pot recipes. Just personal preference. I'm looking forward to having this soup on hand to have has light meal this week. Thanks for posting.
Very good, easy and healthy! I made this just as written, but used extra garlic and extra red pepper. This is a great way to get your veggies. Thanx for sharing!
Very good and more filling than I expected -- a definite plus -- served with cold cut sandwiches, but I think it will be wonderful for lunch just as it is! I added 1 zucchini, chopped and tarragon instead of basil. thanks for sharing!
Perfect blend of veggies!! and healthy too!! Added some tabasco sauce too!! Thanks Barb! :)
Would make this again, might experiment with more spinach and perhaps more garlic, maybe add some black pepper.
I really like the combination of vegetables in this soup. It is easy to make and freezes pretty well. Adding white beans or garbanzos makes a nice hearty soup. The vegetables turn out quite soft. For firmer vegetables, I may try a shorter cooking time in the future.
Great soup, love the flavor! Barb- I know it is your pet peeve to review a recipe that you changed...but my changes were minimal, and didn't change the overall dish. I added a can of lentils (and added more seasonings to compensate) and used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth. I made this to go along with tuna melts for the family, it was a HUGE hit and they didn't even know they were eating so healthy and low-cal! Thanks for posting!
This is more than lovely, it's fabulous. 0 POINTS. And easy too. OMG, I am so glad you were up on Recipezaar today and I found this wonderful easy dish. Thank YOU! Lolly
