absolutely wonderful. I used Imagine brand chicken broth (so thick and rich compared to Swanson's) and used 6 or 7 carrots instead of just 4. my husband and I both loved this, and I'm already planning on cooking it again next week!

This is delicious. I added some hot pepper flakes to the onion mixture and garnished with lemon zest. Great flavor, great nutrition.
