This was delicious and easy to prepare. I decided to omit the apple juice concentrate and found the soup to be the right level of sweetness without it. I did end up adding a little curry powder to the soup, it just seemed to round out the flavor a bit more, and I might try a little thyme or sage next time - it seemed to need just a bit of something extra. I should add that this made just two servings for me, but we really love our soups!
