Excellent soup! I chose this recipe because I could easily adapt it to be low-carb, Atkins friendly. I don't like foods that combine sweet and savory, so all I had to do was eliminate the brown sugar. I did substitute 2 tsp of the artificial sweetener that comes in the big yellow bag. I also added a very hearty shake of crushed red pepper. My DH liked it so much he had two big bowls. I will be making this again.
