Luxurious, delicious soup. Fine texture, keeps you coming back for more. Perfect for a special occasion. I followed the recipe exactly as stated and it turned out great.

Absolutely delicious! I used jarred artichoke hearts and strained the soup after blending but before adding half and half. Velvety texture and no strings!

Excellent! I used 3-4 minced cloves of garlic instead of the one, and I used fat-free half and half. Second time I made this, I made dumplings and cooked them in the boiling soup. EVEN BETTER!

This was one of the most delicious soups I have ever tasted, and I have tasted a lot of soups! I substituted homemade vegetable stock to make it vegetarian, and also added about 1/2 cup extra ar...

Yum!!! I made it for 4 instead of 8 and followed the proportions pretty closely. I used a can of artichoke hearts (15 oz or so) and chopped them. 1 can of chicken broth (again, 14 or 15 oz). ...

We felt this soup just needed the juice of half a lemon. You may prefer more but I suggest tasting before adding the other half. With that being said, my goodness what an unexpected treat! I'm g...

Very good, will definitely make again. However it wasn't as thick as I thought it would be. Maybe next time I'll use fat free sour cream or just a potato to thicken it up.

This was one of the most deeeeeelish soups I've ever eaten. Every single person who tasted it wanted the recipe! A WINNER! Don't hesitate to try this one.
