    Great recipe! I modified to use my homemade veg broth (very low sodium), less butter, and less flour. Here is a link to the modified version: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta

    This soup was delicious! I cut the fat calories down a bit by omitting the butter that was to be used to saute the celery and onion. Instead I cooked them in a bit of the broth. - 4/4/10

    I changed the flour to arrowroot powder and added a quarter cup of Parmesan cheese and it was absolutely to die for. This had a great consistency to it. - 9/22/08

  • Finally an honest recipe that has more than a 1/2 cup as a serving, who can only eat a 1/2 cup? I too, cut out the butter, used some broth instead to save calories there so I could top with a little cheddar. :) - 3/19/13
