    Tasty. Adding tomato sauce, as someone suggested, would ruin it in my opinion. How about adding a few mushrooms instead of artichoke hearts and fresh peas instead of frozen? - 7/8/10

    Very delicious just add some hot peppers yellow and red. Very good to have before you eat your heavy meal. My family and friends love this when we have big dinners. - 7/8/10

    It was a little bland, so added buillion and fresh cilantro. It tasted a lot better. - 4/3/08

    Sounds great! I am looking forward to trying this recipe. I will probably partially blend it because I find that thickens soup nicely while still leaving some nice chunks to munch on. - 7/9/10
