This is a very good base recipe. I did not measure my ingredients. I ended up needing to add a flour/water slurry to thicken it a bit more, however this was likely due to my having not measured the other ingredients. The boyfriend said it was delicious and all he said is it needed more black pepper. I did not tell him it was supposed to be healthy. He even packed up two bowls to take to work tomorrow. Next time, I will try to make some whole grain bread bowls to serve the soup in or else I'll be sure to have a good crusty, grainy bread with butter to serve with it.
