Not much flavor, too many ingredients, such as chayote and zucchini has about the same flavor, color and texture. I added a little hot sauce. Good color. Could add a little tomato sauce to give the broth more color. Instructions talk about onion but there is no onion in the list of ingredients. You have to assume you will be chopping up the vegetables before adding them. Corn flour was not found at my store, so I used white flour.

I tried this soup recipe and it was absolutely delicious, filling, and satisfying. A large bowl is only 3 points. Plus it made a big pot so I had enough to eat on for awhile. I even put it in the freezer. I used 93% fat free ground beef. Yummy!
