I got this recipe from a nurse my sister works with. Its very good, hearty, and healthy. Nuitritous comfort food.

What could be better?

Fennel has a faint licorice taste. Use celery if you don't care for fennel. The spices used help make up for the lack of salt in this recipe. Alter amounts of the spices to your taste.

You can add another can of low fat, low sodium broth if you prefer more broth. This will affect the nuitrition information, however.
