    mlomeister's Note:

    My vegetarian husband had all 4 wisdom teeth out and was on liquids for several days. This was one of the recipes I threw together for him. The "dried herb mix" is a mix of dried herbs I keep handy in a spice grinder: rosemary, bay leaves, thyme, parsley, white pepper, sage, chives, marjoram, basil, oregano. Free free to use any of these you prefer to taste.

      Excellent! I did use the optional cream (half and half) and it was just wonderful. I used my immersion blender to puree. My herb mixture was thyme, rosemary, basil and pepper. I garnished with cooked asparagus tips and shredded parmesan cheese. Thanx for posting this wonderful spring soup!
