Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, carrot, and garlic; cook until the onion and garlic are translucent. Stir in the chicken broth, artichoke hearts, salt, and pepper and simmer 10 minutes. Transfer mixture to a blender and puree until smooth; return the mixture to the saucepan. Squeeze one lemon half into the pan. Place the other lemon half into the saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer another 10 minutes. Remove the lemon half from the pan and pour in the half and half; stir. Continue to simmer until thoroughly heated, about 10 minutes.

We loved the taste of this soup. However putting it through the blender was a big mistake. We all agreed that it ruined the texture. I will make it again, but will not puree this soup. I think I will even add some spinach leaves and some rotisserie chicken chunks next time.

Luxurious, delicious soup. Fine texture, keeps you coming back for more. Perfect for a special occasion. I followed the recipe exactly as stated and it turned out great.

Excellent! I used 3-4 minced cloves of garlic instead of the one, and I used fat-free half and half. Second time I made this, I made dumplings and cooked them in the boiling soup. EVEN BETTER!
