Great! I love all these veggies. I even added a few frozen peas and a cup each of turnip and rutabaga. I didn't have leeks, so I used onion and that worked out good. I also added 2 cans of beef broth and used beef boullion, just because my husband will eat it better if it's got a beefy taste. It has a lot of veggie flavor, we really liked it! Thanks Jo Ann, for another keeper!

This soup is excellent!! The only changes I made were: I substituted some of the water for low fat vegetable broth and one can of Tomato soup. It was easy to make. I take one cup of this to work and have it for my lunch. Really delicious.

Easy and inexpensive, makes a lot so halve the recipe or be prepared to freeze. Very forgiving. I made as written then added some basil. Good basic veggie soup recipe. I plan on eating as is this time, then with a handful of bulgur cooked into it once, maybe white beans once, maybe diced chicken or beef, you could have one soup with many variations easily.

This soup is Awesome!!!! My husband and I both love it! The only thing I added was sliced baby portobella mushrooms. How can this be so tasty and so low-cal? Thanks!

Fantastic! Extremely easy to prepare, love all the veg in it, and I like the fact that it isn't cabbage-based. The garlic and seasoning give it a wonderful flavour so you don't have to worry about it becoming bland. I missed out both the cauliflower and zucchini and it was still brilliant. I also blended it because I'm not a fan of lumpy soup, however it did go a horrible colour so I wouldn't recommend doing so if you're looking for top presentation.

I've tried the cabbage soup diet before and just couldn't stand it. This is so much better tasting and you practically need a fork to eat all the veggies. I left out the spinach (I don't like wilty things in my soup) and I added white beans, curry and red pepper for a kick (sooooo good!). I can easily add cooked lean ground beef, chicken, or noodles to "beef up" individual servings. I plan to eat this for the next 2 weeks for lunch and snacks while eating a sensible b-fast and dinner. Hope to loose some weight! Excellent tasting for 35 calories a serving that's for sure. I think I'm going to have another bowl...

Wow! Thanks for a super soup we enjoyed for our supper tonight that'll for sure be a regular on our table. I omitted the cauliflower and didn't use zucchini as I didnt have that on hand. I substituted the spinach leaves with shredded cabbage. I substituted the chicken cubes with Maggi Veg. stock cubes and I made sure to omit the extra tsp. of salt or the soup would get too salty for us. All of us had 2 bowls each:) - After all, its "All you can eat fat soup diet", right!?! :)

This diet actually works. I did it a nd lost 100 lbs. I did variations, though. I added tofu, soy sauce and chinese veggies (bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, cabbage and the like) to vary the taste. A little cayenne pepper works too. I have used just cabbage instead of the spinach and added curry powder to give me some variety. The soup really has very little calories so I could "pig out" on all of the flavors.
