Another favourite for flavour and cheapness. You can add other herbs if you prefer. It is yum with dark rye bread and a salad. The thicker the better and it tastes even nicer the next day!

Very close to what I make all the time. I leave out the salt, due to my husbands health, and my whole family likes the soup without blending it. I never have left overs.
