Can I Use Other Ingredients

I get this question a lot and here are some of my suggestions for substitutions.

Vegetables: I used frozen vegetables for this recipe. You can use what you have at home or add additional vegetables to this recipe.

Broth: I used beef broth for this recipe. You could also use chicken or vegetable broth.

Spices: I used parsley, cilantro, salt, oregano, and rosemary. Feel free to add additional spices depending on your taste.

Garlic: If you don’t have minced garlic you can use a clove of whole garlic. Cut the garlic into small pieces. You would need to cook the garlic a bit before adding the rest of the ingredients if you will be using a whole clove of garlic.

Spicy: You can use red pepper flakes or hot sauce to make the soup spicy.
