my co-worker are trying this recipe and they have lose 15 pound in almost a month. They use lipton soup intead of onion soup and to give it a kick they added a can of mexican tomatoes (tomatoes and jalapenos). I try it and it is good, only I cooked it for the weekends.

This wasn't bad. But lets face it, this soup is more meant as a way to keep an eye on weight more than it is on taste - which isn't bad, just different. Next time I am going to try some different veggies. I will also try halfing the garlic (a bit overpowering) and using a can of italian seasoned tomatos.

This soup is amazing. I would have never known it was a "lite" soup if I hadn't read the recipe. I think it would also be excellent with small noodles (though obviously not as slimming)

The only reason I give this recipe three stars is for being very healthy. It was very bland, and I like lots of flavor. I don't think I will make this again.

Very good, though I may have damaged the 'slimming' qualities; I tossed in a little cooked chicken that I had on hand, as well as a bit of cooked rice. Instead of bouillon cubes, I use chicken base or homemade stock if I have it on hand. Omitted the green bell pepper b/c I'm not a big fan. Upped the spices, added some fresh ground pepper. Thanks for a great lunch!

I love this recipe, very tasty. I added more condiments like paprika and cumin for a bit of more flavor and got a reduced sodium chicken stock instead. Wonderful! thank you very much I´m having this dinner for the whole week!

The basic recipe has pretty good flavor for a low calorie soup. I upped the herbs and saute'd the onion, garlic, carrot and celery in olive oil prior to adding the broth. I also added some cayenne pepper to give it a little heat.

I used chili style diced tomatoes and this soup turned out way better than I it. I will definately make it again. Thanks lyndell :)
