I used chicken stock not water and tossed in a large ham hock. I also cooked it in a crockpot - so definitely didn't stick to the letter of the recipe but it came out amazing. I will absolutely make it again.

bland. Tastes good with lots of pepper though :) Also keep an eye and water as necessary
To those who made this using water as the liquid, I agree it would have been very bland, which is why I used vegetable stock instead. I also added one tin cracked black pepper and roasted garlic stewed tomatoes. I added 3 cloves garlic plus pretty much doubled the oregano and I added parsley. I cook a lot so I could tell it would have been bland without the additions. With my additions, this is delicious! Next time I might add one diced sweet potato but I didn't have any. To get more protein, I ate this soup with a lentil pattie (no bun and no condiments - it doesn't need it) so this was a really enjoyable meal.
When I try a new recipe and it is not that good, I usually just toss it and forget about it, but this was the most awful I have ever tried and just had to make a comment. For those who liked it I am assuming they like food without any taste.
I just finished making this soup and so sorry I did. What a waste. I keep trying to add seasoning to it to make it taste like something, nothing is working. I will probably just toss it out. It is so bad. Do not make this soup.
