  • Very Good
    I adapted this for my crock-pot, which meant chopping the veggies and dumping them in with 2 cups of salt-free vegetable broth and 2 cups of water. I also added fresh mushrooms. I like low-salt soups, and my family and I enjoyed this one. - 12/18/10

  • Bad
    I normally love vegetarian dishes. But the taste of this soup was very bad. I will not make it again. Luckily it's vegetarian so I can throw it in my compost bin. - 8/25/10
