The execution of this recipe as directed is unusual, boiling the vegetables, for instance, rather than sweating them and proceeding with the recipe, which is what I did. The chicken bouillon granules wouldn't contribute much beyond salt, so I left it out. Similarly, dried parsley wouldn't contribute much either, save for a little color. I skipped that too, and used fresh Italian parsley. Fresh garlic and thyme filled in for the garlic powder and dried thyme called for. For added flavor, as well the long grain rice it includes, I used a box of Uncle Ben's long grain and wild rice.I did choose to add the white wine. This is not a spectacular soup as written, tho' it is much improved with some small changes. It's a satisfying soup that should appeal to most tastes.
