    I used 2 large carrots, 3 very small parsnips, 1 good-sized leek. I used low-salt veg bouillon and omitted the green onions. I divided it into 6 servings. I carefully weighed the ingredients and found the nutrient data as listed to be correct. It did not spike my BG at all. And it was VERY GOOD! - 9/27/10

    I have made notes of what everyone else added. Sounds better and better. Regardless of whatever the calorie count is, it still gets leveled out in your own daily count. - 6/16/10

    I wanted a bit "stronger" flavor in mine, so I added garlic, celery, and black pepper...tasty, and a good soup for cooler Fall days. - 9/26/08

    I actually added about 1 lb of chicken and swapped butternut squash soup for the chicken broth. I added the chicken for my hubby - and it worked - he loved it and so do I! - 12/17/07
