Wow, great soup! I like the strong basil flavor so I used the whole teaspoon. My soup seemed too thin at first. (This had me second-guessing myself...Did I actually add 3 tbsp flour in the roux?) To fix it, I drained off the liquid into the blender, added half the potatoes, and blended them until they were smooth. Then, I added the other potatoes back and...YUM! Terrific smooth potato base with chunks of potatoes. Love the consistency! Lastly, I didn't have half and half, but I had heavy whipping cream, so I used about 3/4 cup of the heavy cream and 1/4 cup milk. This may have contributed to the really creamy texture after blending it. Definitely doing it that way next time I make this!
