  • I love this recipe!! I am a meat eater so guess what? Yep! I added shaved beef and a can of garbanzos, yellow squash and canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh it was incredible. Even my daughter loved it and she hates soup! I had to call it stew, though! Hee hee Thanks so much! - 3/31/09

  • I substituted parsnips in place of the carrots- it gives it a nice earthy spice. Thanks! - 3/24/09

  • Incredibly delicious recipe! Although I'd call it more of a stew than a soup. I'd be going back for a third helping right now if there was any left. ;)

    Especially good with fresh tomatoes out of the garden.
