Let's see, where to start. First off, I didn't think 3C broth was enough. I like "juice" in my soup so I probably used 5-6 cups of broth. No fresh tomatoes so I used a can of petite diced...added 10 ozs of mixed vegetables (I was a little confused by the directions...said to add green beans, maybe that's what the person who submitted used instead of mixed). Also, I probably used 4 cups of diced sweet potatoes. I also added about 1/4 t. of cayanne pepper to add some kick. Think I'll add a little more next time. My boyfriend and I LOVED this soup, in fact, I'm having it for lunch now as I type this review. Really, really good!!! Will make again.

Though easy to make, did not like this at all. The massive amount of dried herbs gives it a weird texture (maybe better with fresh?) - and yet despite the herbs, the flavor wasn't good.

We really enjoyed this soup. It's delicious and pleasing to the eye, very colorful! Next time I make it I am going to use a can of Rotel tomatoes instead of a fresh tomato to add some kick to it!

This was the BEST soup that I have ever had! I've cooked a different soup each week for the last 3 months or so, and by far, this was the most delicious! As I am a vegetarian, I substituted the Chicken broth for Vegetable Broth. Mmmm Mmmm good!

I chose this recipe because I had 2 big sweet potatoes with no idea what to do with them. I used canned (rinsed) chick peas a can of mixed veggies (rinsed) <-- those were shopping oops so using it was a major plus. I also added more ckn stock, 6 cups. Added some curry in there too. It was delish!!

Wow, this soup is surprisingly delicious! I followed the recipe except for adding only frozen green beans, not mixed veggies, and I used a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles in it(oops!), in place of fresh tomato. I don't like alot of spice, so I added a scoop of non-fat plain yogurt to my bowl of soup. It turned out amazing! I will make this regularly, adding the Rotel tomatoes.
