Very delicious! I didn't do a bouquet garni, but I took others advice and added parsley, a couple cloves of minced garlic, cilantro, and chives. I prefer the herbs in the soup anyway. I love all the vegetables, and I did add zucchini. This will be made again! Thanks!

This is a hearty soup with a nice mellow flavour. I added chopped fresh basil, chives and parsley directly to the soup and used a medley of beans. Next time I might add some garlic and/or hot pepper to give the soup a bit of jazz.

Made this recipe as given, with but one exception ~ I substituted some homemade vegetable stock for the chicken broth since my vegetarian son & DIL were to be at the table! Other than that, though . . . Yours is a wonderful tasting soup & I'm happy to keep the recipe on hand! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars recipe tag]
