Top Review by anme7039

This made a very tasty soup! I never really made a soup with its own stock completly from scratch before so this was a learning experience! The next time I make this I may add a bit moe spice or hot sauce, something to kick it up a bit more. But over all this was a very good soup considering this was my first time making one totally from scratch!
