    KaffirLime's Note:

    The basis of any good soup is in the stock that makes it. However, there are constraints in the current kitchen at the café and so, some recipes have to be modified to make things easier to prepare.

      Delicious and nutritious, if a bit heavy on the calories! I used half butter, half Smart Balance. I couldn't resist topping it with grated cheddar cheese as well as the bacon. Next time I'll try thickening it with instant potato flakes instead of flour, since a half cup is kind of a lot to use, but it still came out great.
