  • I made this earlier today and love it. I don't usually like vegetable soup, but I love this! - 11/5/12

  • I absolutely love this soup! To lower fat even further, use just 1 tsp of olive oil. I also decrease the basil to 1 tsp, and add black pepper, an extra garlic clove or two, and Mrs. Dash garlic/herb 1 tsp. To cut the sodium further, use the water from your boiling chicken instead of canned broth - 10/28/10
