What a delicious soup. I used less thyme as I wasn't sure I'd like it, but it was a fine addition. Good without the cheese, but excellent with it!

So quick and so simple. I did also boil a little longer than stated, but the end result was fantastic. This is a great tasting soup and I just loved it.

Very nice and simple recipe. I had to add almost a full cup extra of broth, the soup was just to thick! I would also add less thyme and a bit of salt next time. I used non-fat half and half. Thanks beckas!
