I'm giving this recipe four stars primarily because I changed a lot of things, and I don't think it's fair to rate a recipe lower than that unless you stay true to it. That said, all of my changes were either suggested in the intro to the recipe itself (adding more/different veggies), or out of necessity. The soup we ended up with was good, not spectacular, but I thought there were some problems with the recipe itself. The biggest one is that there didn't seem to be enough liquid. That could be because I had a mutant head of cauliflower (I only used half, but did add a cup or so of broccoli florets and a little leftover frozen spinach), or because my idea of a "large" potato or onion is bigger than Vivien's. Either way, I had to add an extra two cups of water, and the still veggies weren't close to covered. Also, maybe she was using salted stock -- mine was unsalted -- but I had to add far, far more salt than 1 tsp; could have been the extra water, but I still don't think one tsp would do it for all of those veg. The nutmeg and pepper disappeared until I added more. All of that being said, this was a decent base recipe, and will be useful for making cream of leftover veggie soup, but I'll probably keep my eye out for another in the meantime. Thanks, anyway!
