Really delicious and easy to make! I love that there's minimal peeling, cutting and chopping! I thawed my veggies and potatoes in the microwave before adding them to the soup. My frozen veggies were just the broccoli/cauliflower blend, so I added in some fresh shredded carrots. Because of all that flour, you really have to stir often during the simmering. I used fat free half and half to cut some fat. The results are wonderful. Thanx for sharing this soup!
