I rarely give out one's, but sorry, I just had to this time. I started making this as is, except I used regular garlic power instead of granulated. (From what I can tell, granulated is the same as powdered but bigger pieces, like salt.) I then DOUBLED all the spices except the salt and it still tasted like flavored water. (Bland isn't the proper word. And I don't know how anyone could think the pepper or sage were over-powering. I tasted about nothing.) I did notice at least a couple of the 5's are people who doctored it up. I started adding some bouillon just cause I couldn't see more spices doing anything, and ended up adding 5 bouillon cubes. That finally made it "reasonable." I had both barley & lentils I needed to use up, plus I like having a big pot of soup that I can eat for 2-3 days -- so it seemed like a bright idea to make the whole recipe even just for me, but sorry I did.
