  • Absolutely delish!!!! I will be making this again and again and again. I did add a couple carrots that I had on hand because they needed to be used. Also, did not take an hour to simmer...I left the heat on medium so it was more of a boil and it took only 30 minutes to cook. - 3/11/10

  • Tasty soup. I left the peels on for the nutrients, added some extra celery and carrots. Used a lime instead of a lemon cause I didn't have one. Took the stick blender to it, and it came out well. :D will be adding this one to my routine. :D - 10/7/09
