    I made a few adjustments: used homemade vegetable stock instead of chick, cut the milk in half and used half potato puree. Really quite delicious. Thanks. - 11/17/19

    I substituted my no-salt homemade vegetable broth. Chicken broth is loaded with sodium. Also used soymilk to make it vegan. - 6/10/08
