Very very easy and super delicious! No oil, cream, or butter, yet this soup is rich and creamy. I will make this one again and again! Thanks, Dr. Kim!

This recipe was wonderful! Filling, Yummy, And Agreeable to my system!
Thank you for so many healthy, good tasting recipes! (I did add more than
just one clove of garlic, and also a touch of nutmeg when adding the lemon
juice. I also doubled the recipe so that I could freeze a few containers for
"busy days".)

This recipe is added to my list of dishes to make on a regular basis! It's extremely simple, healthy, and inexpensive to make. But best of all, it was delicious! I was afraid it would be a little bland and was surprised to find that it's fantastic! I added some extra garlic and lemon juice (almost a whole lemon's worth) - the lemon juice is simple but really brightens the soup up.
