To make almost any vegie soup GREAT, I add some lime juice and salsa to taste after I've put it in my bowl. I put lime wedges and a bowl of salsa on the table when I serve vegetable soup. My kids don't like it spicy but love the lime in their soup, too. I leaned this in Mexico. Here's a great recipe for salsa that goes well in soups:

Boil 3 medium tomatoes or 10 to 15 tomatillos and 1 to 5 chilis for about 20 minutes in enough water to cover. (cut stems off chilis first) Drain reserving some of the water. Put 1 to 3 cloves garlic and the chilis into a blender with a little of the reserved liquid and blend well. Put everthing else in and blend.

Caution: soups with dairy products will separate with the addition of lime juice and look really weird.
