I don't understand the excitement and rave reviews about this recipe. It's just a plain vegetable soup with too much zucchini and celery, and rather bland even with the addition of broth instead of water and extra spices.

Delicious and very simple to prepare. Following the recipe to a "T", however adding in 3 teaspoons "Better Than Vegetable Bouillon" Vegetable Base and also 2 links of Tofurky Kielbasa, cut into small pieces. I would not change a thing! We really enjoyed this soup and will look forward to having it again. Thanks so much for sharing all your wonderful recipes with us Uncle Bill!!

Mmmmm! Delish! I used chicken broth instead of water and added the whole can of beans. I love this recipe. I will make again and again. Thanks!

I know this sounds weird, but I added a can of vegetarian refried beans to thicken it up. Family loved it!

I love all the veggies in this soup, but we had to spice it up quite a bit because it was a little bland.

I did not like this at all but my husband thought it was good. Did everything as described but just not a soup for us.

I cook this every three or four weeks, it's delicious. I use 1/2 a teaspoon of oregano instead of 1/4, a dash of Worcestershire and Tabasco sauces and a teaspoon of Vegeta. My boyfriend loves it for dinner with hot toast and butter. Yum!

Excellent soup, Uncle Bill! I didn't use the zucchini this time (but will next time), used regular canned, diced tomatoes, 1 can of great northern beans and added 3 chicken bouillon cubes. I did have to cook it quite a bit longer than the time stated because my celery was still crunchy. But I sure enjoyed this soup on a cool, rainy, dreary day. Thanks!
