This may be the perfect soup. The ingredients are usually on hand, it's quick and easy to make, and it's got really great flavor. I have only two suggestions about making this soup: At least for the first time, resist the temptation to add other vegetables, especially greens, to the soup, because the golden color of this soup is really beautiful, and, leave some of the vegetables unpureed to add a little texture. Thank you, Sara, for maybe the best soup recipe I've ever had the pleasure to use!

Fantastic!! But better than just that..it was just so SIMPLE! Have to say that it was at first a bit watery. My guess is my potatos were too small! But the fix was easy. Just added some instant potato flakes which thickened it up nicely. I also used my hand mixer instead of pureeing which still gave the soup a nice creamy base, but also had hearty chunks of veggies as well.

Very good recipe. I used one sweet potato peeled and one white potato unpeeled, fresh parsley, skim milk and 1 can of chicken broth for some of the water. Next time, I will use less liquid in the cooking and add milk as I puree teh soup to get the consistency I want. Will definitely make again, good flavor.
