    Yum! I put all sorts of veggies in this; potatoes, one carrot, some green peas, kale, spinach...mixed lentils, a little bit of black eyed peas. It's packed and it's super tasty. Greens+nutritional yeast combo makes it special.  -  13 Oct 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I use half a bag of power greens from Costco. Otherwise I follow the recipe as written. His has become a staple in our home. The nutritional yeast adds the right amount of umami to this vegan soup.  -  25 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was excellent. I added carrots and celery and I didn’t have collards so I only used kale and chard. I also did not good process it. Very much enjoyed by the whole family.  -  07 Dec 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
