    My husband declared this soup a keeper. I decreased the milk/cream as I felt the potatoes added enough creaminess. :)

    I used more veggies than called for, and more broth and sharp cheddar cheese; used mostly skim milk and some fat-free half-n-half. Loved it! Delicious and healthy. A keeper. Thanks, Jan

    I substituted vegetable broth to keep it vegetarian. Delicious!

    This is a great recipe but I felt I needed to tweak it just a little. I added some curry powder and more cheese than it called for and also salt to my liking:) it is SO good, perfection!

    This is great soup! It is adaptable to the amount of veggie and type of dairy that you have on hand without changing it completely into something else. By all means though, try it as is, yum!
