    I used this recipe yesterday, and it was delicious! I did add grated carrots, one can cream of celery, and one can cream of mushroom soup. I also omitted the cornstarch and water, I thicken all of my soups with powdered mashed potatoes, you can make it as thick or thin as you want that way, and it is much easier than cornstarch, with the added nutrition. EXCELLENT!!  -  15 Dec 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Oh yeah, you guys were right; this soup is definitely up there with Paneras! It was also one of the quickest soups I've ever made as it took me all of fifteen minutes. I used frozen broccoli and once thawed in the broth, I took the vegies out and chopped them in my food processor. I didn't have any celery soup in the house, so I used a "healthy" cream of chicken instead. I added some of my own seasonings including cayenne for a little kick, otherwise I followed the recipe. Absolutely delicious Pam and thanks!  -  24 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
