Perfect veggie soup! I made it as written, subbing fresh spinach for frozen, then adding 1 zucchini and about 4 button mushrooms. I used fresh herbs and still wanted a little more oomph, so I added a little Spike Seasoning and some 21 Salute Seasoning from Trader Joes. Very nice! Can't wait to eat it for dinner!
Simply delicious! What a marvelous tasting soup, I would love this even if it wasn't healthy but the fact that it is is a real bonus. I tossed in some water chestnuts that were ready to be used and they totally absorbed the soup flavors and added a nice crunch. I used stewed tomatoes as thats what I had. Like Loula I just used a pan and very slow simmered it for about an hour. Can't help but love the fact that it made with things I always have on hand. Thanks ellie, this one is a real keeper!
What a wonderful soup!!!! Ellie, this really is such a great recipe full of flavour and so good for you, too! :) I luved the combination of veggies, which was complimented nicely by the herbs and broth. So yummy! Due to personal preference I left out the celery and didnt miss it at all. The soup was hearty, filling and quite spring like with all those colourful veggies. I dont own a crock pot, so I just put everything into a pot on the stove and simmered it on medium heat for about 30 minutes. It worked out nicely this way, too. I will most definitely make this again! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing it here with us! Made and reviewed for the VIP in Veggie Swap #21 April 2010.
