      I've made this recipe twice already - once with the green pepper and once without. I think it tastes great either way and wonderful too if you didn't want to include the lemon juice. I'll definitely be making this again and again! Thanks for sharing.

      This is good. I omitted the green pepper as another reviewer out of preference. I used my own homemade chicken stock and canned crushed tomatoes (I know fresh would be better but I didn't have any on hand.) I used sea salt and flat leaf parsley for the parsley. Made for January Event - Soup is On in the Diabetic Forum.
