    If you criticizers look carefully the recipe notes 3 cups bullion - if you take 3 cups of DRY bullion this will give you that crazy sodium count. Everyone is so quick to criticize instead of actually giving something a try. - 3/20/09

    You could use chicken instead of turkey and make your own broth, that would help with the sodium content. If you buy low sodium broth, you could also make it with a rotisserie chicken. Much faster! - 3/5/09

    I liked this, it was nice for a change in menu. I wasn't sure about the avacoado on top but it added to it. Thanks for sharing! - 4/9/09

    If you make your own chicken or turkey broth,you can make a day or two ahead and refrigerate. When you get ready to use the broth, the fat will be congealed at the top and is easy to take off and discard. - 3/5/09

    It's amazing how fast it is to make this soup and yet how delicious it is! A definite, year-long family favorite for us. The only adjustment I make is to use my home made turkey (or chicken) broth to cut out those thousands of mg of deadly Sodium. - 3/5/09

    I used chicken instead of turkey, but otherwise I made it exactly. Super flavorful and not difficult. It took maybe 20 minutes and tasted great! - 3/25/08

    I am looking forward to trying it, with homemade broth. JJDOCKRICH, as the originator of the recipe you can edit it to fix the sodium count. Instead of bouillon, use one of the low-sodium broths in the SP database. Thanks! - 11/1/11

    If someone is worried about the sodium, then just use low sodium chicken stock! This sounds really good - 3/5/10

    you can use white cooking wine(usually found on the aisle with the vinegars) which has the flavor without the alcohol. also I think the sodium has to be a misprint. - 3/5/09

    I never try a recipe with this high amount of sodium or any recipe that has over 200 cal per serving. I don't feel it leaves me enough calories for the rest of the meal. Since I didn't try it, I won't be able to rate it. - 3/5/10

    As well as me watching my weight, my husband just had open heart surgery so we are careful about everything we eat in the sodium content column, so I would never make this although it sounds great. Any of the pre prepared broths or soups have an exorbidant amout of sodium. Homemade is the way to go - 3/5/10

  • I don't understand where all that sodium comes from. I generally use low sodium broth or make my own. Does pre-packaged broth really have that much sodium!!? - 11/19/09
