Anyhow, I gave my youngest son a taste of my Muir Glen Vegetable Soup and was shocked when he said that he really liked it. It gave me courage to try out this vegetable soup on him and my other two reluctant vegetable eaters. The whole family loves pesto and that is certainly the dominant flavor, so I figured this would be a good way to help disguise those veggies.
The verdict: DH and youngest son liked the soup very much. Oldest DS is sick, so he was not interested in any dinner at all - poor guy. I liked the soup quite well, but something was off. Perhaps it was just that I imagined the soup a certain way and it came out differently. In any case, I would certainly make a similar soup again, but perhaps not feel limited to the recipe, feeling free to just throw something of my own together.
