    This recipe originated with my Grandmother in 1910. Since then, I made modifications to use more veggies to enhance the flavor of the soup.

      This soup is wonderful! It's light and every flavor stands on it's own AND blends well with the other ingredients. Perfect seasoning, too. I misunderstood step one - I simply boiled my potatoes as I usually would and discarded the water instead of keeping it- but added it all later & everything was fine. I halved the recipe and made the mashed potato part the night before and the next day I put everything in the crockpot, saving steps 9 & 10 for the last hour. I also made the addition of a 1 lb. bag of frozen corn (plus I used the entire 1 lb. bag of tiny peas even though I only made half the recipe), and used half & half rather than cream. At first the cauliflower aroma was powerful but eventually it mellowed out - and best of all, one of my sons ate cauliflower for the first time & loved it! I had guests when I served this and EVERYONE loved it - your recipe went home with them & it will be a permanent part of my own collection. Thank you for sharing your Grandmother's excellent recipe Uncle Bill!

      This was a very good and simple soup to make. I used alot of fresh dill and potatoes so it had a very traditional Russian flavor. I might try a little more cayenne next time. Also am go to try reducing the broth and pureeing half the soup to thicken. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

      Another great recipe I have tried from your cookbook Uncle Bill! My favorite soup, I try a different recipe every time. This is one of the most flavorful and tasty. I pureed the whole thing before serving, which is how I like it. Next time going to try it with a pork hock. Thanks again!
