Soup Of The Day

Well...last night I made the soup from the recipe below. Oh. My. Goodness... IT was/is delicious!!! Since I am not a true vegetarian, I made a couple of changes - I used low sodium chicken broth (because I had some) and some cooked chicken breast. I also added a teaspoon of  Better Than Bouillon vegetable base. I found this by accident a couple of months ago and now, I use it in a lot of things. I did not use the cream. Other than these minor changes, I made the soup just like the recipe, and it is now one of my favorite soups. Next time I make it I will use vegetable broth, and I think I'll add some kale.

Great stuff!

That looks very yummy!! I love a good chicken noodle soup - even more so if it has dumplings :)

Ladycat, it really is delicious...and very filling. I totally recommend it. :) Oh yeah, I did add a bay leaf, oregano, and a little thyme. I grow herbs and always have plenty to use in just about all things I cook.

Adrielle, I am not a fan of dumplings, I do like noodles, but I have to count carbs in my house and don't often cook dishes with noodles. With the garbanzo beans in this recipe, it makes it very filling. With a good salad, this makes a complete meal. I just haven't been hungry enough to make salad this past week. This soup would be just as good without the chicken, but I had some that I needed to use up. Do make it, you'll enjoy it very much. :)
