This is a great tasting soup recipe shown to me by my Auntie Ethel Sabourin. It's a vegetable soup, but you add the garlic at the end to give it a strong garlicky flavor.

This was a bit bland for us. I added a bay leaf an onion frozen cut okra and some browned hamburger meat but beef broth instead of chicken broth might have helped. Read More

Great recipe. I used vegetable broth in place of chicken brown rice in place of the pasta and added a squirt or two of Bragg's at the end with the garlic. I'll make this again and again with various additions. Oh I also completely left out the water and opted for an extra cup of broth. Read More

This turned out really good but as usual I had to change a few things! I didn't have any cabbage so that was out but instead I added an onion and some mushrooms. I also did not have any fresh garlic so I added almost a teaspoon of garlic powder and it was fine. I used 1/2 chicken and 1/2 vegetable broth and cut the water down to two and a half cups. I added basil and oregano and fresh parsely too. It all turned out really tasty but I think it would have been bland without my additions. Thanks! Read More

Great base recipe - easy healthy and very tasty. I played around with this and altered the base ingredients. I only needed 6 cups of fluid in total - 4 cups chicken stock 1 and half of vegetbale stock and half a cup of red wine 1 teaspoon of sugar helped to balance these changes. I sauteed the garlic with 1/4 of a large onion at the start then added my other vegetables as per the recipe. Because I was going for a complete meal on a bowl I added 2 skinless poached chicken breast halves. I poached in water flavoured with some red wine and 2 stock cubes. After chopping the chicken into bite size pieces I added it half way through the simmering period. Delicious with soy and linseed bread. Read More
