I've just made this soup, it's specially good after poor healthy eating during holidays. I've added orange juice, wine and soy sauce.

I just made the soup and it turned out excellent. However, I am trying to figure out what other spice to add to give it just a little more flavor.
I read this recipe while waiting in my doctor's exam room ... waiting, sadly, to find out that I had strep throat :( I went home and made a pot of this soup. I made two changes. 1) cooked the flour in a roux, 2) added a few handfuls of chopped kale. The soup turned out to be rich, roasty, soothing and delicious. Even a person who's ill can pull this off - easily.
I made this last night to use up the last of our Thanksgiving turkey and it was fantastic.
I did add 2c extra broth and 1t of herbs de provence. Also I got some store brand wild rice mix similar to rice-a-roni and tossed the sesoning packet in with the flour. I forgot the parsley but I don't think we missed it!
I think next time I'll add some spinach in just because I love spinach in soup.
This reheats very well!
