What a lovely soup. I added a diced onion and 2 cloves of minced garlic to the saute pan . I also added 1 teaspoon of celery seed and about 1/3 cup of white wine. My husband adores this soup and I've promised to make it for him often! Thank you Chef Whitney!!
This is a favorite in our house as is, especially since you don't need to use the blender. I will definitely try the above reviewers suggestions, since adding onions, garlic, and wine, can only make any dish better!
