This wasn't bad. But lets face it this soup is more meant as a way to keep an eye on weight more than it is on taste - which isn't bad just different. Next time I am going to try some different veggies. I will also try halfing the garlic (a bit overpowering) and using a can of italian seasoned tomatos. Read More

This soup is amazing. I would have never known it was a "lite" soup if I hadn't read the recipe. I think it would also be excellent with small noodles (though obviously not as slimming) Read More

The only reason I give this recipe three stars is for being very healthy. It was very bland and I like lots of flavor. I don't think I will make this again. Read More

Very good though I may have damaged the 'slimming' qualities; I tossed in a little cooked chicken that I had on hand as well as a bit of cooked rice. Instead of bouillon cubes I use chicken base or homemade stock if I have it on hand. Omitted the green bell pepper b/c I'm not a big fan. Upped the spices added some fresh ground pepper. Thanks for a great lunch! Read More

The basic recipe has pretty good flavor for a low calorie soup. I upped the herbs and saute'd the onion garlic carrot and celery in olive oil prior to adding the broth. I also added some cayenne pepper to give it a little heat. Read More

Excellent easy to make soup. I made as directed and I wasn't disappointed. The next time I might add in the basil and Italian seasoning in the last 15 minutes because while tasting I think I liked it just a little better when it didn't have a chance to totally be absorbed into the other flavors.
