I made this soup for my 1 year old twins. The ingredient list looked good and had a very low sodium content. However, this soup tasted off and bland to me. One of the twins wouldn't eat more than a few spoonfuls, but the other enjoyed it. I thought it was pretty bland. Next time I make it, I will add lots of garlic and more spices to kick it up. Thanks for posting, this recipe is nice & easy. I look forward to trying it again with a few modifications.
