The only thing I do different is add celery, green beans, fresh or frozen, cut. and fresh sliced mushrooms.(love my veggies lol) My whole family just loves it too.

I followed the recipe (as much as I follow any recipe) except instead of potatoes, I pureed a can of Great Northern Beans with some of the broth and added a can of tomato paste. The soup is thicker and has a few less carbs, but is delicious. Highly recommended!!

I cut this recipe in half and it still made a lot of soup. I made as is with the exception of adding tomato sauce along with the canned tomatoes because I like my soup to have more of a tomato base. I used seasoned salt instead of regular salt and did not use the optional sugar in the recipe. I really like this soup. It had a lot of flavor. I would probably add a little more potatoes next time. This is actually a pretty healthy soup. Too bad it is only my husband and I, even with cutting the recipe in half, we still have a lot of soup left. I think I will try freezing some. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us.
