When I lived at altitude, I had to adjust the microwave directions to 6 oz water in a really tall bowl (it will boil over otherwise) for 2 minutes, stir, then 1 1/2 minutes more. So hearty and tastes great! Impossible to believe it has no meat in it.
This soup is much heartier than I would have expected and it tastes great and even smells great. if you plan ahead you can add some chopped tomato, bell pepper and avocado and then it is a really satisfying, fresh meal!
