    I deviated from the recipe a little. I used 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. pepper. A bit too much pepper, next time 1/4 tsp. Added 1 can evaporated skim milk, 1/4 c. Parmesan, and 3 cl. garlic. Thickened with 2 Tbls. corn starch, not flour. Keeper! Very versatile. - 11/2/09

    Good basics but needs more seasoning. I added some garlic, some fresh rosemary & lots of pepper. I also thickened it with some instant mashed potatoes instead of the flour. I think it could also benefit from a broth or onion soup. Or try pureed winter squash or yams as a thickener. - 3/19/08

    Very good! I substituted Zucchini for the celery. Left out the salt because we are on a low sodium diet. - 1/19/10

    I used chicken broth instead of the butter, added garlic, omitted the salt and added parmesan cheese. It is fantastic. definitely something quick and easy to whip up for lunch. it only takes 30 minutes to make. I will most definitely make this again. - 9/9/08

    I liked the ideas from both TSIMS2008 and SOCKKNITTER. I thicken soups like this with tapioca flour or potato starch/instant potato flakes...gluten free. - 3/19/08

  • I made this exactly as printed and it was good, just a bit too much thyme for my taste. I will definitely make again maybe trying other spices/herbs in place of the thyme. Maybe tarragon next time. - 3/10/10

  • I added about 2 cloves of chopped garlic and it was still a little bland. I like this as a base,but it needs more seasoning. It was just good. - 3/9/10
