A decent basic soup to use as a starting point for creativity. The only change I made was the parsley (dried instead of fresh since it is what I had). Thanks for the inspiration. Read More

my fiance and i really enjoyed this simple soup. i didn't have croutons but they're not really necessary. i will definitely make this soup again. and remember...you add one cup of broth at a time. that should help alleviate the problem of it not being soupy enough! Read More

We substituted mixed vegetables for the celery and used brown rice instead of white and it was delicious! We intend to cut the butter by 1/2 Tbsp (or by 1 Tbsp for four servings) but this one is definitely a keeper especially for cold nights! Read More

Turned out to be more of a rice recipe than soup recipe. Although it had a good taste there wasn't enough liquid to make it soupy. Read More

I agree with other reviews. This is a great base soup just add whatever you have in the fridge. I added carrots green onions roma tomatoes and some summer sausage. It ended up tasting like a jambalaya. The other reviews made me brave enough to try anything and it worked! Read More
