    This is a quick and very tasty soup that is very easy. I love it with a crusty bread and a salad for dinner.

      This was a great soup, easy to make- I added a few ingredients ( onions, garlic) and cooked in some turkey stock I had left over. My husband loved it.

      This was a *great* soup! I actually used mock mashed potatoes (cauliflower) for a lower carb soup and it was superb! Thanks!!

      A friend recently gave me a similar recipe. We have really been loving it! I add about 4 carrots and 2 cans (4 cups) of chicken broth. I cook all the veggies with the broth in the crockpot all day. Then puree and serve. Really good and tastes fattening.
