    Excellent soup, very tasty and easy to make. I omitted the butter, cream and salt. Instead, sauteed in water and used plain soy milk. I did, however, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of loosely grated sharp cheddar cheese. The flavor was still excellent with the modifications.  -  24 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is an excellent recipe. To call it gourmet, however, may be to venture into hyperbole. I seasoned it with fresh pepper, and garnished it with shredded cheddar, but made no further adjustments; none need be made. This is a solid, simple recipe that, given the excellent, tasty result, takes very little time and effort to prepare. It is refreshing to find a recipe accurately scaled down to two servings--thank you Miss Zyla!  -  04 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
