A bit bland. I added some chopped garlic, basil (paste) and tomato paste. When soup boils, simmer, and take @ 2 cups of the liquid + veggies out of the pot & puree in blender. Put puree back into soup pot with soup, stir & simmer for 15 min more. Makes a hearty veggie soup

Excellent soup. I made it chunky with large diced veggies, and used a little crushed red pepper instead of the black pepper. Wow! We loved it. A big bonus is that it's really quick and easy, too.
