I made it in a stock pot instead of a Dutch Oven. I also doubled the recipe. It is fantastic and I will make it again. I found it to be flavorful with the right amount of zing! I only had one tsp. of anise left in my container. I wasn't able to double that but it was still great!
Pros: Filling and easy!

I doubled the garlic and added crushed red pepper, as "delicate" and "subtle" flavoring translate into "tasteless" in my book! I also had to add a little salt.
This was a pretty good soup, all in all...I had to transfer to a stock pot, as all the veggies did not fit into my dutch oven.
Pros: low in calories

Tasty & filling soup, with a very subtle aniseed flavor. I omitted the olives as I don't care for them, and added a little salt to make up for their absence. I found that the recipe made only 8 x 1.75 cup servings, not 12 as suggested.
