I really enjoyed this although I used an artichoke salsa in place of the canned artichoke hearts. The salsa had tomato and various things in it so, of course, it had a flavor that differed from the original recipe. After a sample I added a splash of white vinegar and some salt which gave more of a marinated artichoke-ness. It's very simple to make and a great change from the everyday bean soup. I didn't have the croutons to add but they would be a perfect touch. Made for "Partying The Diabetic Way*
Very simple prep. It comes together quickly and has a very interesting flavor. I followed the recipe to the letter and was rewarded with a yummy, soul warming soup.
