I made this exactly as recipe indicated and found it to be delicious and very satisfying. However, the next meal I'll add chickpeas or cooked turkey/chicken to provide some protein as I personally need more protein in my diet. The soup does not demand anything else.

Easy to make, filling & and tastes good. It was even better the second day. I added a teaspoon of grated parmesan cheese to kick it up a bit. Healthy can taste good!
