    This was a great soup!! I love chunky soups so I did not puree it was a nice, thick soup. I used fat free sour cream and half fat mushroom so it was definitely a healthy meal. I did not have celery so I just went without!! Would definitely recommend this soup to my friends!! Thanks  -  17 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Yummy! I loved this soup. I don't care for mushrooms, so I used cream of celery soup instead. Otherwise, I followed the ingredients as listed. Carrots take much longer to cook than zucchini, so start the diced carrots first... then add the onion and celery, and finally, when they are almost tender, add the zucchini. (or, perhaps consider grating the carrot which would then could very quickly) When you get to the puree step, make sure to also puree the cream of ? soup. In my case, I had a delicious soup, but with some random lumps from the cream of celery soup. Should have pureed that too. The flavor of this soup was wonderful, very rich and absolutely delicious. What a fantabulous way to get your daily dose of veggies! Yum!  -  04 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
