When making this recipe, I was in a hurry and didn't have cream at hand. I browned the veggies rather than cook them in water, added onions, doubled the flour and, because there was no broth, added some veggie boullion cubes. I added no water, but rather, used fat free milk for the whole thing. Added in some frozen brocolli, just for fun. It was sooooo good!


This recipe is easy and very good. As with any recipe, we all tweek it to our own. So, I added some fresh mushrooms at the onion-butter cooking stage. Added extra paprika, salt and pepper and in the end I pureed about 1/3 of the soup to make it a little thicker and that way I was able to add quite a bit of the veggie stock you make with the potato broth. This is a scrumptous recipe and I will recommend it to my friends.


This was really good! After reading other reviews, I cooked the carrots and celery with the onions. I also added garlic to the butter and vegetables. I added much more paprika and pepper than were called for in the recipe, and it wasn't spicy at all. I also salted the water when I cooked the potatoes, which I diced. And I added some frozen peas toward the end of cooking for color. It was delicious, and I can't wait to tweak it again sometime with some cheese and other vegetables.
