    I thought it was really good without pureeing it. I have no way to puree it... I added more spices and it was REALLY good!!!! I just double the spices that were recommended. I also grated about an ounce of cheese into my bowl and it was phenomenal. Just a suggestion :) - 3/28/11

    Thank you for your comment. I appreciate it very much. An option would be to include leek, but I didn't have it that day, so I left it out.

  • This is basically my go-to quick supper. Changes are no water but 1 15oz can chicken broth plus a smallest can of condensed milk. Even in summer it is a great 'soother' of nerves! Well, we do have a/c : ) Thank you for posting this. - 3/16/12

  • I am new to cooking, I didn't know what to do about the amount of spices or that bay leaves just simmer and then are removed. But I made it work and it was good. Next time I will know how to season it better. Also since I need more protein, I threw some pre-cooked seasoned ground beef to my bowl. - 10/31/11

  • not so good in cooking so can you please explain this: "Use a food processor to puree the soup. After that, return puree to the soup, stir and heat through." --does it mean i should puree the soup first and then what? how do i reverse the puree back to being a soup? just didn't understand here. help - 6/8/11

  • I cant get over just how good this soup is. I started out thinking for sure I would need to add some cream to it in the end, but was so glad I didn't because it was great the way that it was. I did us half chicken broth and I added some nutmeg on the top when I served it. - 11/9/10
