Soup was good but bland so i added garlic/onion powder, parsley tsp or more or to taste -more pepper & 1-2 tbsp chicken soup base again according to taste and a cup of chopped green pepper. I will make again but will use chicken broth instead of water which will help with the taste.
Outstanding! I am on Dr. Joel Furhman's "Eat to Live" diet and this recipe makes boring beans a wonderful food. I like the crisp celery and carrots. Just right. Sometimes I add lemon or worchestershire sauce at the table for a little more zip.
This has very good taste, but still wasn't a hit with my family. I may make it again once a year or so.
