Very nice texture after blending. This is a great basic recipe, but as written it is very bland. It's certainly something fixable without adding fat or calories. I went back and added smoked paprika, some salt and pepper and a little dill. I think many other herbs and spices could be added to suit your tastes. Parsley, tarragon, mustard powder, curry powder, etc. You can really individualize this soup and still keep the calories down. Thanx for the starting point!
