    Gorgeous soup - we picked everything straight from the allotment and I'm sure this helped but it is a good flavour. Like others we didn't use cream and used vegetable instead of chicken stock but it was still delicious.  -  16 Jul 2017


    Didn't add cream on this occasion and still amazing.  -  20 Jun 2017


    This delicious soup was rich and creamy tasting even without the cream. I simply added extra broth after it was blended to adjust the thickness. I also added 3/4 cup of chopped celery and an extra potato to the cooking pot, along with a pinch each of dried parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. (Sing while you add these!) I was afraid at first to tell my teenaged son what I was making for dinner, but he helped, and the whole family loved the results.  -  10 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
