Delicious! Easy dinner served with buns & veggie plate. Can be made vegan and served to vegetarians/pretendatarians/meat eaters :) As well, beef broth can be used in place of vegetable broth.

Wow, I thought this soup was delicious! I put in the bacon and the sour cream and it was super tasty. A real hearty and thick soup, just what you need on a cold day.

I had such high hopes for this soup, as it smelled wonderful as I left the house, but 8 hours later, it did not. I managed to eat some with sour cream added, but no one else would. I could not even salvage the broth - it had an off smell to it. I think that this needs to be cooked for a much shorter time period - maybe an hour or so on top of the stove. The vegetables looked so sad and were unappetizing.
