Comments on this Recipe

this soup is great

I made this tonight. It was really very good and filling. Will taste even better when these vegetables are in season. I followed the directions pretty much, didn't really measure, and used veg broth not water and regular tomatoes because I already had them.

I too, used faux "chicken" broth instead of just water. Also cut a slice of bread into cubes, toasted it, and added it as garnish. Crunch + soup = yummy!

Great recipe but 4 Tbsp of red wine vinegar was way too much and completely overtook the flavor of the soup. Would use only 1 Tbsp next time. Like other reviewers, I too used vegetable broth instead of water.

This is such a rich deeply flavored soup. I used sweet red peppers to enhance the red color, used home made veg broth, a bit of Poblano in the roasting mix to give is a slight umph. I had only one pint of tomatoes so used two 15 ounce cans of diced tomatoes and it worked well. I did roast the garlic with the veggies in the method that is here given. I LOVE the use of water rather than oil. Thank You! I tried to roast onion but is burned so I used that part that was not charred. I probably won't do onion this next go at this...which is tomorrow. I get so much from your magazine, as a GF vegan I must modify things but you have great ideas and recipes! I am very grateful.

roasted veg soup

reduce vinegar to 1 Tbsp use veggie stock sweet red peppers to enhance the color

Love the soup but I also agree with other reviewers that 4T vinegar was a bit too much; it overpowers the veggie taste. Lovely way to enjoy late summer produce in the fall, if you freeze it for later!

Sauerkraut is really good in veggie soups
