A delicious soup and easy to make. I used only 1 onion. I used veggie broth instead of water but other than that I followed the recipe as written. Didn’t used the mustard or the vinegar as I didn’t feel it warranted it. The soup was delicious as is. PS: made it again and added 2 sliced carrots PS: made it again with 4 cups veg broth and 4 cups water and it’s just as delish! Read More

I added some chili powder red pepper flakes and some lemon to the recipe which I think increased the overall flavor. The recipe is nice for a simple and easy soup on a cold day. Read More

In the ingredients list there no carrot amount! But in the instructions says to add the carrot with the celery parsley etc. I did add carrot the same amount as the celery. I thought it tasted very good. Housemate didn't. Don't know if will make again. Read More
