    Easy to make and I also topped it with sour cream & chives. Delish!

    This soup is a gift: must be prepared in advance, super easy, delicious AND elegant! I soaked the diced onions in water for a few minutes to remove the bite. After sautéing thoroughly, I pressure-cooked it till ingredients were very soft, so it would easily blend smoothly. Yes, it is very rich but worth it. Savor every slurp!

    I made it and it is wonderful. I added a dollop of sour cream to my bowl and enjoyed that, too.

    This soup is excellent. I used homemade vegetable broth and added a little thyme. Super yum!
