    I liked it. It was not quick to make; leave time for preparation. It was pretty thin, not unexpected for a broth soup, but I did add whole wheat pasta shells for more body. Doesn't have a strong flavor. but it was nice.

    I added more fresh garlic and some garlic powder. I think I liked it better before adding in the balsamic vinegar. A quick and easy soup to make. It was filling. I'll make this again and maybe add in some other ingredients to make it a little spicier.

    Neither my husband nor I liked this recipe. It was not flavorful and had a bitter taste to it. The chickpeas and carrot combined were good but this one needs work.

    Nice and filling but bland.
