Vegetable Soup with Garlic

    1 hour 40 minutes

    This is a great tasting soup, it is essentially a vegetable and pasta soup but then you add the garlic at the end to give it a strong garlicky flavour.

    This was a bit bland for us. I added a bay leaf, an onion, frozen cut okra, and some browned hamburger meat, but beef broth instead of chicken broth might have helped.  -  28 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This turned out really good, but as usual, I had to change a few things! I didn't have any cabbage, so that was out, but instead I added an onion and some mushrooms. I also did not have any fresh garlic, so I added almost a teaspoon of garlic powder, and it was fine. I used 1/2 chicken and 1/2 vegetable broth, and cut the water down to two and a half cups. I added basil and oregano, and fresh parsely, too. It all turned out really tasty, but I think it would have been bland without my additions. Thanks!  -  02 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Great recipe. I used vegetable broth in place of chicken, brown rice in place of the pasta and added a squirt or two of Bragg's at the end with the garlic. I'll make this again and again with various additions. Oh, I also completely left out the water and opted for an extra cup of broth.  -  21 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
