“This soup is closest to the soup I remember as child. I have seen many renditions of it surface in several bistros. It is easy and the method can be applied to broccoli or cauliflower.” - by Cyd Lmbros

"Let me say that I was skeptical about the outcome of this recipe....I was wooried that it wasn't going to turn out right...It turned out fabulous!! My husband commented all throughout dinner how much..." See more he liked the soup....I took the advice of others and sauted some celery with the leaves along with the margarine and onions....and I diced up some baby carrots with my chopper to cook along with the potatoes....and I topped the soup with some crumbled bacon and cheese...just needed to add a bit of salt....WONDERFUL!!! Will be making again and again and again! Thanks for the recipe!"
"Just made this soup and is very tasty...I substituted milk with Pet evaporated milk. I added Celery (leaves included), broccoli floweretes (as I love broccoli)and sauteed with the onions and I used st..." See moreraight Chicken Broth in lieu of Chicken bouillon..I did not use Parsley and Thyme at all...Don't think its needed...I made homemade croutons seasoned with garlic/butter/and parsley..Topped the soup with chopped green onions, bacon bits, cheese, and croutons....It was very good and the family loved it...I didn't add flour to the onions/broccoli/and celery...I added flour last to the soup by mixing the flour with cold water real good, then added to soup. I mixed one Tablespoon of flour into soup at a time so as to reach the consistency of thickness I wanted because of using Pet evaporated milk as its thicker than milk. Will definitely make again..."
"Made this on a day when comfort food was what I wanted and it filled the bill admirably. Changed the method a bit, though because having to wash two stockpots would have made it that much less comfort..." See moreing. Cooked the onion, as directed, then added the potatoes and carrots to the onion, sauteed for about 5 minutes on medium low heat, added vegetable broth, brought to a boil, and then simmered, covered, for about 15 minutes, till potatoes were tender. Added herbs and pepper, and 2 cups of milk. Whisked flour with the other cup of milk, and added it to the simmering soup. Cooked till thickened. Served bowls of grated cheese and crumbled bacon (for the meat eaters in the family) on the side, and some lovely cheese toast. Felt much better afterward. Thanks so much."
