We really enjoyed this soup. My teenage son ate 2 bowl fulls. This also makes TONS of soup so I put some in the freezer for a day when I'm feeling too lazy to cook. I did make a few changes: I used 1 large onion instead of 2. I used 4 cloves of garlic. I didn't have any canned tomatoes so I chopped one large tomato. I also didn't have parsley so I just left it out. I also ommitted the chicken bouillon (we are vegans) and substituted veggie broth powder for another flavor. This is a recipe I plan on using again and again. Thank you!
very good flavor. i did'nt use the orange, and i doubled the carrots because i did'nt have any celery. the flavor got better after letting it sit overnite. i thought it was great because i had all of the ingredients on hand, and you could make simple substitutions if you did'nt. good job!
