    This was wonderful! We subbed zucchini "zoodles" for the egg noddles, just adding them raw at the last 2 minutes to warm up but stay crunchy. It is hearty. It is full of flavor. It is definitely a great soup not to pass up!  -  05 Feb 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    See my reviews under another great recipe for "Potato Leek Soup II" by Julie. I took both recipes and combined them to make one fantabulous soup! I loved both versions, and could not decide which one to make, so I made them both -- together!  -  08 Dec 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made it for the first time last week and it came out awesome! I added some more ingredients for more flavor:  -  12 Nov 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
