  • This recipe is light, but unfortunately, it's bland and thin. I added 1/3c carmelized onions, 1 tsp chicken base & 1/2 can creamed corn & lemon juice, to fill it out, but still not sure what's missing. I do like that it's very low fat & perhaps chilled with greek yogurt for summer it'd be good. - 12/5/10
