- Reheat if necessary and serve.
Simple to make and tastes great!
This has become my family's favorite soup and I make it all the time. My three kids love it! I don't care too much for dill, so I replace it with marjoram. In summer I use fresh herbs. Sometimes I add 4 pieces of chopped bacon because my hubby loves meat. And instead of the cream I've used whole milk or a can of fat free evaporated milk. Both are good. Great recipe!
This is great soup. I increased the soy sauce, but used a little less flour. Very rich and delicious soup - a hit with everyone at the table!
