A creamy vegetable soup with a wonderful flavor. For variety you may add shrimp or chopped imitation crab. As an added note, this recipe is how I met my husband online a year ago.

This was a great soup!! I love chunky soups so I did not puree it...it was a nice thick soup. I used fat free sour cream and half fat mushroom so it was definitely a healthy meal. I did not have celery so I just went without!! Would definitely recommend this soup to my friends!! Thanks Read More

Yummy! I loved this soup. I don't care for mushrooms so I used cream of celery soup instead. Otherwise I followed the ingredients as listed. Carrots take much longer to cook than zucchini so start the diced carrots first... then add the onion and celery and finally when they are almost tender add the zucchini. (or perhaps consider grating the carrot which would then could very quickly) When you get to the puree step make sure to also puree the cream of? soup. In my case I had a delicious soup but with some random lumps from the cream of celery soup. Should have pureed that too. The flavor of this soup was wonderful very rich and absolutely delicious. What a fantabulous way to get your daily dose of veggies! Yum! Read More

I had some large scallop squash left from the garden so I used that instead. We also don't use a lot of processed food and wheat so I skipped the soup and flour. Here is what I did. Sauteed finely chopped onion fresh garlic and mushrooms then took half out. I added cubed scallop squash carrots and celery and sauteed until soft. I pureed with vegetable stock we already made then put everything back in the soup pot included saved onions and mushrooms. I added cream instead of milk about 1 cup some salt and pepper. Even my two year old ate the "yum-yum-tummy" soup. I just didn't tell him it was full of veggies. Read More

I'm a baker not a cook... but this recipe was so easy even I couldn't mess it up. Wonderful delicate flavor.... I can't wait to share it with my friends. I made this soup to the letter and it was excellent. Just a touch of cracked pepper to taste and you have perfection! Read More

DELICIOUS!! I didn't have the sour cream and wine but I had everything else and needed something to make for dinner so I went ahead and made it any way. It was wonderful - even better a day later!! Will DEFINENTLY make again. I also used cream of celery because I don't like mushroom and left out the chicken bouillon and used Swanson's No MSG chicken broth instead of water. Can't be beat for a healthy delicious light summer meal! Read More

I made this with dairy-free substitutions and it was still amazing. I used dairy-free margarine and soy milk then instead of the cream of mushroom soup I added mushrooms to the vegetable mixture before blending and just increased the milk in the cream mixture by 10 oz and increased the flour and margarine accordingly. Also added some leftover chicken and used the wine - definitely a keeper! Read More

i absolutely love this recipe! i've made it a few times and it's perfect every time without changing a thing. the only thing is that i don't like it the day i make it. i think it's best after it sits overnight and all the flavors have a chance to really come together. thanks for a great recipe!

This recipe gets you headed in the right direction. For anyone cooking for someone with hyperreactive innards or not liking seasoned food this recipe is fine as written. For those who prefer seasoned food you ll need to add the ones you prefer or you ll likely end up finding this soup lacking flavor as some other reviewers noted... make that one simple fix and turn this into a great soup. To save prep time just rough chop the vegetables rather than dicing them if you re going to puree the soup per the directions. The approx. 20 minute cook time at medium low is spot on. Pulsed the soup in a Vitamix blender leaving flecks of zucchini and carrot for visual appearance. We subbed condensed golden mushroom soup for cream of mushroom 1-1/4 cups chicken stock (omitted water & chicken bouillon) and used light sour cream. We went with the optional white wine using a sauvignon blanc. Seasoned with sazon white pepper and dash of cayenne pepper. This made a distinctly flavored creamy soup and they already want more made soon. Thank you Karen. Read More
