There is no way the measurments on this are correct... I had to alter everything. 1 c of chicken broth is supposed to make a pot of soup? Not so sure about that. I used a lot of different spices to add more to this... I also used 4 c. chicken broth and 2 c. milk... made plenty. I used red potatoes with the skin and about 8 c. diced zicchini. This tasted wonderful but I had to write all over the recipe to make it right... I'll make it again but my own way. Read More

After tinkering with it I liked this recipe. It's begging for salt and pepper and it definitely needs to be pureed. Extra milk doesn't hurt either. Couldn't believe it called for only 1 cup of chicken broth! I worried that it would burn before I ever got to add the fresh herbs. In place of savory I used fresh thyme. Read More

This is a good soup. I think it needs salt and pepper though. Also I pureed it after it was thoroughly cooked--it seems more palatable that way to me. Don't forget the sour cream when serving. It definitely "makes" the dish. For a switch instead of the sour cream some cheese sprinkled over the top (cheddar?) might be good. Read More

This recipe was awesome. i did use butter instead of margerine for flavor purposes. i omited the savory simply because my grocer did not have it. after simmering for 20 minutes i blended it in batches then added heavy cream instead of milk. topped with croutons and sour cream this is a wonderful dish Read More

I don't know how this soup got 4 stars!!! This is the only bad review I've given on allrecipes. Usually I alter everything I make for personal preference but this needed some major alterations. Use the zucchini onions and potatoes and alter everything else: add ingredients take out ingredients more of this little of that. Read More
