I love this soup! I have been making big batches for several years now, but I always add kale, cauliflower, and shelled edamame (aka soybean, low cal, low carb, high protein, and delicious!). Someone else suggested adding shrimp and white beans, which I'm going to try next time. Delicious!

I have had this soup before but found it again and decided to make it because it is absolutely delicious! A little tip for those of you worried about sodium and calories... There is a product called Herb-Ox, it is a sodium free instant broth & seasoning. It has zero sodium and only 10 calories!! I used it with my latest batch of soup and it was delicious! Plus I left the extra salt out that the recipe calls for :) You should try it! And if you do I hope you love it as much as I do!!

I was reading over this amazing recipe but had to turn away due to the sodium count. Crazy amount. I would substitute the broth, which I find has tons of sodium, with water saved in the freezer from boiling and/or steaming your fresh veggies. Add some dill to replace any salt

Just joined Weight Watchers and found this soup recipe. I have made the soup today and absolutely love it. I hope this helps my weight loss also. Will definitely be making it again.

I had forgot all about this recipe until a chat friend happened to mention it. I made it with just about all the ingredients and added a few extra veggies, I had in the refrigerator. What a success! We have it available all the time as college-age son finds it a perfect 'fill-up' when he has hungry friends over or for those late night studying/paper writing sessions. Great way to keep weight down and enjoy the summer harvest.

Very good fresh taste to it. I'll make this again (I'm not on weight watchers, but if this soup is allowed then I might just have to join to eat more good food like this!)
