    i won't have to wait for 2nd day for flavor. It's great and not even done yet. I didn't have thyme. And i will substitute spinach for the kale. It will be delicious. Thanks.

    This soup is amazing!! I added a couple extra veggies (like more kale, carrots, celery) and I used 2 cans of broth (28 oz). I also added a can of northern beans. Absolutely delicious. We can't stop talking about how great it tasted!

    I am going to make this minus the rice…I will make some quinoa separately and add to individual bowls of soup!
