from lowcarbfriends.com Update: 4-02-09: this is a really quick soup to make, and so tasty!:) i left out the carrots and added garlic to the onion....lots of garlic.... i doubled the batch and took some to "punky's mum" so we will have to see how she liked it :) I think next time I might add some mushrooms.

MMMMMMMM...this was so good! Very simple to prepare, wonderful flavor, request from whole family to make again, I am definately more than happy with this one. I did sub veggie broth for the chicken since that is what I had on hand, and I added garlic just cause I love it.;0) The lemon juice is the kicker. It adds a wonderful little something extra to this. Thank you so much for sharing, definately a keeper.

Simple basic flavors, easy to prepare, and healthy. I added some chopped garlic and would like to try this with fresh mushrooms. Made a nice filling lunch with side salad. Thanks for posting.
