Love this soup. I forgot to add the cream and it was great anyway!

This was a good recipe which made a good soup without costing a lot of money. I followed the recipe except the parsley and the chili powder because I wasnt sure if the chili powder I had was the right kind, as it said "mexican" so i left it out. The rosemary is a must here. I used all organic ingredients and I was very pleased with the results. I left out the cream and then just added it each time I heated up some soup. It was filling without giving the feeling of being stuffed. Very nice light yet substantial soup. Thanks for sharing.
