      This is definately not a heavy soup. It is very easy to make. The only changes I made was to add salt and pepper. My doggie even ate a bowl (don't ask) and she enjoyed it VERY much! Thanks!

      I scaled this back for 2 using a 1/2 red onion, 1 very large zucchini and vegetable stock and made as per recipe until I got to the blending part - my stick blender went kapoot just as I started so served chunky with a dollop of sour cream and even with all that green showing the DM ate the lot and was looking for seconds - note next time make a full recipe. Thank you Jan, made for Make My Recipe.

      I was surprised how much flavor there was in this soup. I enjoyed the chicken flavoring and hint of lemon. I added both the sour cream and paprika in my first bowl. I like it best without the sour cream. Leave out the butter and sour cream you have a GREAT low calorie soup. Don't forget to add the basil in at the end as it adds a nice touch of flavor.
