This is an excellent recipe. To call it gourmet, however, may be to venture into hyperbole. I seasoned it with fresh pepper, and garnished it with shredded cheddar, but made no further adjustments; none need be made. This is a solid, simple recipe that, given the excellent, tasty result, takes very little time and effort to prepare. It is refreshing to find a recipe accurately scaled down to two servings--thank you Miss Zyla!
This recipe was just okay. I ended up squeezing the juice of half a lemon in as well as putting two dashed of cayenne pepper and several dashes of Old Bay seasoning in to jazz it up.
Excellent soup, very tasty and easy to make. I omitted the butter, cream and salt. Instead, sauteed in water and used plain soy milk.
I did, however, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of loosely grated sharp cheddar cheese.
The flavor was still excellent with the modifications.
OMG...is this awesome or what?!!! We absolutely loved this soup. Not to mention how EASY it is to make. I followed the recipe exactly as written and would not change a thing (as I normally would) in the future either. Thank you for another grrrreat recipe.
Oh my gosh!! You're right Elizabeth! It IS GOURMET! it tasted so good I want to make it ever night! I give it my own rating of 10 stars! very very good!I'm going to make it tonight for my mother-in-law!
Instead of cream I use oatmeal to thinken up the soup! After I puree the soup it comes out nice and creamy! (and healthier!)
I made this recipe almost exact as stated (added garlic powder, tastefully simple season salt, dash of nutmeg and fresh black pepper)and it got nothing but rave reviews!
I added fresh minced garlic with the other vegetables and I skipped the parchment paper step only because I didn't have any. I also used fat free evaporated milk because I don't usually keep whipping cream on hand. This soup tasted turned out rich and creamy--nice "cup" soup as in something to drink. Very good.
