The first time around, I almost threw it away when I added the milk because I thought I screwed it up royally, but all I had to do was wait a few more minutes and keep stirring. Make sure you keep stirring and give it time. This soup is great because it's creamy and thick while still being low-fat. I tend to add a good amount of black pepper and garlic powder, and it makes a big difference. Just a touch of cheese on the top, and it's a filling meal that everyone enjoys.

Very bland. Did not like it at all. I'm a real soup nut and will make a big pot of soup to have on hand or freeze. I ended up throwing it away.

This is the first soup I've made and it was fantastic! I did alter it a little though, after reading some of the reviews. Instead of water I used chicken broth and did about 1 1/2 cups. I also scratched the celery and used broccoli and took out the powdered milk, and used red potatoes. At the end after I added the flour/milk mixture I also added a handful of grated sharp cheddar cheese and a little garlic. I do have the gritty taste others were mentioning, but I think that is due to the potatoes sitting for so long...as a potato lover, I can't complain though!
