This was really good. I also added thyme, and added a little garlic powder. I used vegetable bullion instead of chicken as I am a strict vegetarian. It was for this reason I also used soymilk instead of regular milk. Something else I did differently was I had already steamed some celery, so I just threw that in when the onions were done.

What a nice recipe!! It tastes good as is, and it will taste wonderful in the chicken dish I'm about to prepare. I added 2 sliced cloves of garlic to the saute mixture as well as 1/4 t. kosher salt and 1/2 t. dried thyme. It took 6 large stalks of celery for me to get 4 cups. I pureed everything - the flavors mix so much better that way. Delicious! Makes 4 1-cup servings
