I am a traditionalist, I guess and although this soup was okay first time around. Left the tarragon, cilantro out and added flat leaf parsley. I roasted the garlic since I like the mellow flavor imparted by the roasting. Added a few red pepper flakes - only enough for flavor, left the skin on the potatoes and followed another users idea to use fat free 1/2 and 1/2 but only. Mashed some of the potatoes (not all just some) rather than puree and still got the natural thickening from them. Didn't use the flour for thickenening as we have people with gluten allergies. Came out wonderful. Only boiled for awhile at the beginning to cook the potatoes. After that, because I used no flour, I only used medium setting heat.
