I think there are lots of different recipes for soup and people can make their own additions and subtractions - soup is all about personal choice!

Mine was good and gets 4 - 5 stars but I did change up the recipe quite a bit, so I'm not sure . I do think it would have been very bland and boring as the recipe stands now.
