This was great!!! I took Mirjam's lead and substituted veggie broth for the chicken broth. When I ran out of feta cheese [the next day], I substituted parmesean, and it was equally as wonderful!! Thank you for an easy, quick, nutritious and delicious soup, it really hit the spot!!!

Simply superb! This was part of last night's dinner, and I brought the leftovers in for lunch, had to beat my co-workers off with a stick! I subbed veggie broth for the chicken broth to make it vegetarian, and added double the amount of feta cheese (the recipe calls for 1/4 for 4 people, I upped it to 1/2 a cup). Thanks Lorac, this a new one for my repetoire!

This was great! My husband is sometimes very leery of 'unusual' things I make, and although this is unique (not unusual) he LOVED it and thought it was great! I also used the vegetable stock as an alternative. Superb!
