Thanks for the tip on the size of cooker to use. I halved the recipe except for the tomatoes. I used a whole 28 oz can. I also added 1/3 c pearl barley. Those are the only changes I made. This was AWESOME!! DH even liked it although he picked out the zucchini and added turkey meatballs to his portion. This will be a fall staple in our kitchen. Thanks for posting.
Delish. The cook time was right on. We loved the tomato juice as a base. I served with fresh whole grain bread and a green salad for a light dinner. Thanks for posting.
Very good vegetable soup! I did use vegetable broth and did not add the hot sauce. Instead of the two small zucchini I only used one and added some canned cut green beans. Thank you L.and T.mom! (Made and reviewed for Pick A Chef 2007)
