      Great recipe, but I do make changes to this. I worked my way through undergrad as a waitress, so I know that at the rest. they use chicken stock somewhere, because I had to tell vegetarians about that when I waited on them. So, I boil the potatoes and veggies in chicken stock. I pour most of the liquid out when I puree, and I think this might solve the "too thin" problem described by the other reviewer. I also don't puree everything because the real thing has some pretty good size potato chunks in it.

      The soup is delicious. Thankfully I did read the reviews prior. Definately save some potatoes and only use enough liquid to puree the potatoes, celery, and onion. Also, I added about 3 more cups of cheese as suggested. Great for a cold night like today. Thank you everyone for your suggestions.

      I used some other reviewers suggestions and got a very good result. With some more tweaking it could go five stars. My recommendations: 1. Wilt/saute the veggies in the pot with butter/olive oil before throwing in the potatoes to simmer. 2. Simmer potatoes/veggies in stock (chicken or vegatable) rather than water. 3. Use ONLY enough stock *to cover*, and just barely. 4. Pour off most of the liquid and reserve before putting in the blender. Adjust soup's thickness by stirring liquid back in at the very end. 5. Puree 1/4 to 1/3 potatoes to silky fine texture. Leave the rest chunky 6. Cut butter and half-and-half in half! It just dulls the veggie taste and makes you fat to boot! This lesser amount should still make the cheese blend well (you need the milk fat). 7. MORE CHEESE. I used four cups and could have used six. Forget the butter/cream and splurge on CHEESE! Good luck!
