This soup was fantastic. Very decadent tasting and definitely a meal for two people. Wonderful soup with crusty bread for a rainy afternoon. We found this recipe in a Dutch magazine called Aller Hande (AllerHande 12 2004).

Absolutely delicious! My husband turned his nose up at it and said it sounded bizarre but after he finally tasted it all I heard were compliments. My alterations...no dill since I didn't have any and parsnip instead of potatoes since I didn't have any of them either. We'll have this one again. Thanks so much.

This was superb. I didn't have any potatoes at hand so I omitted those and used 1/4 cup of milk in lieu of cream cheese and it was still delicious. I also halved the amount of onions used because it seemed a bit much and I worried that it would overpower the soup. I will definitely be making this one again.
