This was a good bisque but I found it a little bland, I would make it again but would suggest adding a little zing to it, maybe some thyme or marjoram, and more than a pinch of pepper, I added more at the table, or go a little Italian with some oregano or basil. Also thought it was a little thick for my tastes, will thin the left overs down a bit with some more chicken broth. I did love the crunch of the veggies,cooked perfectly. I also used milk and becel margarine. Thanks for sharing.
