Delicious, hearty, low fat and high protein soup that doesn't use meat or bones for flavor - just fresh veggies and spices.

This is EXCELLENT. It's on my stove right now, keeping until dinner. I've already eaten a bowl because I couldn't wait! The texture of this is nice and smooth--a bit of grain depending on how finely you process the ingredients once they've cooked. Because I can never make a recipe as is, I added about four cloves of garlic and also a few red pepper flakes (probably a teaspoon.) I also used chicken stock to replace about half of the water, although I realize that changes the vegetarian part of this recipe. THANKS for posting!
