Colin, I've been down the Road of Tasteless, What is it? Food...blah-humbug. So, you went to a restaurant with a picture menu--ah-ha! Gordon Ramsey would have fun with the menu, I'm sure! There's no excuse for unheated soup, which Jen and I also had at our Panera Bread.Heat snd Taste is big with me--a recipe can't wuss out on flavor. I shake on the herbs and cracked pepper, along with kosher salt, with abandon. The palate is alive and well in my kitchen.This recipe sounds delicious,and most enjoyable on these chilly days.
I must admit that I too, am a huge fan of seasoning. (It is almost to the point of seasoning with a palsy.) While I do believe that some dishes should be mild to allow the diner to season to taste, c'mon!! If a restaurant advertises its "bold, bountiful flavors" then for crying out loud, bring it!!
Unfortunately their soup is bagged frozen. It is inadequately warmed up in the bag and not even in boiling water. Afterwards 16 cups of water is added to what is poured out. There's your lack of seasoning and temperature simply explained.
