“Just enough for two people, easy to prepare, and freezes well. If freezing, do not add cream until ready to use.” - by Elizabeth Zyla
Original recipe yields 2 servings
- Melt butter in pan, do not brown. Add vegetables, toss to coat with butter, then press parchment paper on top of vegetables--this is called "sweating"-- for better flavor. Put lid on pan and simmer very gently until vegetables have softened. Do not brown.
- Remove paper, add chicken stock, bring to a boil, then simmer until vegetables are soft.
- Put in blender and puree until smooth. Pour back in pan, add salt, pepper, and cream. Simmer gently, do not boil or cream will curdle, until heated through.

This is a solid, simple recipe that, given the excellent, tasty result, takes very little time and effort to prepare. It is refreshing to find a recipe accurately scaled down to two servings--thank you Miss Zyla!"
"Excellent soup, very tasty and easy to make. I omitted the butter, cream and salt. Instead, sauteed in water and used plain soy milk. I did, however, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of loosely grated sharp ched..." See moredar cheese. The flavor was still excellent with the modifications."
