Just made a double batch of this and ate WAY too much of it! It's very rich, even though I used 1% milk. Tomorrow I'm going to steam a head of cauliflower and add that to the rest of the soup. That will cut the richness. I always have these ingredients on hand and will make this again! It reminds me of cream of mushroom soup (which I love.) Thank you! I never would have though of this on my own...
