  • I have this on the stove right now and I think it's good! I did not add the vinegar because of the prior review, but will add a little in my bowl when I serve myself just to see how it tastes without putting it in the whole pot. I will make again! - 9/28/09

  • Did not like this soup. Not sure what it was, the lemon pepper or rice vinegar, but just simply didn't have a good flavor. - 6/20/09
