wonderful recipe! I made half of it. And today I made it with tomato cause I needed a tomato cream soup for a recipe (recipe#88213) It was great. For the tomatoes I added tomato puree from a can. Thanks Bonnette :) Made for PRMR tag game

I used this in a recipe, instead of eating it like soup, and it worked just like the canned variety. I made the mushroom variety, and plan on trying out the chicken variation over the weekend (plan on having some leftover chicken!). I love that it is so much lower in sodium. Thanks for sharing your innovative recipe!
