I added more grain and used tapioca instead of rutabaga, resulting in a delicious stew-like concoction. Great stuff! Thanks for this delicious recipe.

Is This Really Necessary May 28, 2002

This is a real stick to the ribs soup. Great flavor - the flavor is rather hard to discribe it is almost spicy but yet suble, it must be the just right combination of veggies and herbs. As said inexpensive and very satisfying. It is a meal in a bowl and produces 6 generous servings. I used a combination or brown rice, Barley & mixed lentils Thanks Lernnie

This was wonderful! I added a can of Rotel tomatoes and I used broccoli instead of the rutabagas. I may add some mushrooms next time. It is super easy and the very flavor rich. I highly recommend it.

Sorry, this was just okay for me. I guess I should've left out the thyme (used only a little) as I really don't care for it that much and it was still overpowering. It was a good thickness and a good way to use up some extra veggies in the vegetable drawer. Makes some good Lenten lunches.

Although I made a few substitutions due to ingredients on hand, i.e., kashi, bulgur & brown lentils for grains, extra vegetables and cumin to the spice list..... this was fabulous!!!!!! Probably the best vegetable soup I've ever made. Thank you so much for sharing.

This is delishous, hardy stew. I added 1 tsp. of cumin, just because, and used split peas instead of lentils. Sticks to your ribs. thanks for the great recipie.

I normally make big batches of soup on the weekend and freeze them in individual serving sizes for lunch. I didn't have any soups in my freezer to grab for today's lunch so I got up early to make this soup. I am eating it now for lunch and it is soooo good and satisfying. I used celery instead of the rutabagas. I will definitely add this to my lunch rotation.

I loved the texture that the different grains gave the soup. I used wild rice for the regular. I did not use rutabagabut used celery instead. I did brown one pound of ground beef and added a can of cream of celery soup and white beans at the end and it was delicious.

Used kumara instead of rutabaga, left out the cabbage (none on hand) and threw in some leftover roast chicken. Delicious! Definitely making this one again!
