Terrific vegetable soup! Even DH had seconds and thats almost unheard of for anything! I'll fess up to using veggie "meatless"balls that I keep almost all the time in the freezer and veggie broth. Loved the tomato-veggie broth and the fresh vegetables. I didn't add any salt and neither of us thought it was needed. 5 stars from DH and I so I guess thats 10 stars. Made for Photo Tag.

Hi, This was great. I used ground turkey since I have to limit my red meat (and face it, I save that up for steak). The only other alteration I made was to reduce the salt to 1/2 tsp salt, since I have to watch my sodium intake. Even with these changes the recipe was great. 5 stars all the way.
