Any low calorie or low GI vegetables can be added. I stay away from corn and potatoes. Use any seasonings you love. I also sometimes add cooked chicken to mine to make it a full meal. I use this soup as a stable in my kitchen and just add fresh veggies, chicken, a salad or some fruit to finish off my meal.
Serving Size: makes approx 20 2 cup servings (depending on size of pot used to cook)
