      I love soup and this one was very good. Used a large baking potato, vegetable broth, and dried parsley and basil. Fresh flavors, crunchy croutons, and a bit of tart from the sour cream. Thank you Chickee for posting this yummy soup recipe. Made and reviewed for the Aussie/NewZealand Recipe Swap #34.
