I liked this soup, and enjoyed it with a loaf of sourdough. We thought the sherry was a bit strong. I'll use a little less next time, maybe 1/2 cup. But if you like sherry, go for broke. Also, since there's no recomendation on how much salt and pepper to use, I used a chicken bouillon cube and a little pepper. Otherwise, fast, easy and tasty!
Good soup! We had this with toast and salad. Thanks!
