The soup was easy to make and hit the spot on a cool day. I loved the flavor from the savory and thyme. The soup was a little thinner than a traditional cream soup, but very good served with fresh croutons. I used chicken broth and added a half teaspoon of poultry seasoning. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
