Inez, you have nursed me back to health! I've been stuffed up with a cold, feeling rotten all over and not wanting to eat a thing. My boyfriend went looking for a recipe that I would eat and he chose this soup. It was so delicious I had two bowls and that's saying something because I hadn't eaten anything but ice cream for a day. The steam cleared my nose, the veggies and hearty broth filled me up. And I feel so much better now. Must have been the soup that did it!
This soup was really lovely. I used my homemade chicken stock and added some noodles five minutes towards the end. The is real comfort food. Thanks so much for sharing.
Mu DH just loved it. I had chicken left over from the night before, and used Campbell's Chicken broth. I did omit the cream however this time as we both have a bit of Sinusitis; therefore it's best to avoid dairy!
