  1. It was ok. I do not think I will make it again.
  2. This was my first attempt at making a cream soup and I was surprised at how good this came out and very filling. The only thing I might change next time is to substitute broccoli for the carrots. This recipe is very forgiving and you can modify it to your tastes.
  3. Great soup on a cold winter night. I made a few changes. I doubled the recipe and increased a couple things: 1.5 cups carrots 1.5 cups celery 8 potatoes.

  9. Absolutely delicious! I was in a hurry and had to use 100% fat free chicken broth. I did dice the potatos but because I didn't want to make use my food processor for the other veggies I thinly sliced them.
