I made this soup this evening. It was fantastic! The celery isn't listed above but it is referenced to in the directions. I'm not crazy about celery so I left it out. I also used fat-free half and half to lower the fat content. I will defintely make this again! Read More

Tried this recipe as written first and didn't enjoy it. It didn't taste bad just very bland. After seasoning changes it was a solid four and I think with a couple more changes it could easily be a 5. Replaced water with chicken broth changed green bell pepper to red upped black pepper to a full tsp. Added 1 tsp curry powder 1 tsp salt 2 tsp celery seed 1 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp onion powder 1 tsp red pepper flakes 1 Tbsp minced garlic. Next time will omit almonds and add sliced mushrooms and possibly spinach. Read More

Delicious! A really filling hearty soup. I added an 8 oz. container of sliced mushrooms and it was very good; this would also be easy to add chicken to. Thanks for the great recipe; I will be making it quite often. Read More

I thought this soup was absolutely delicious (and so did my boyfriend!). I didn't use the almonds and used dried instead of fresh parsley and the soup came out great! DEFINITELY a keeper! Read More

This soup was so good! I reduced some almond milk on the stove in place of the half-and-half and didn't use slivered almonds or parsley and it was awesome! Rosemary also blends well with this soup. Read More

I made this for my daughter who has Parosmia from covid. I took out onions and added celery. I chopped carrots, and celery in food processor, then used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and water. I used milk instead of half and half. I was afraid it would be bland, but it turned out really well. Read More

I liked this recipe but only gave it 4 stars because it was not very flavorful. I added curry per suggestion from another reviewer and ditched the celery for Zucchini. Otherwise this was a very good recipe and a big hit with the family. Read More

We thought this soup was great. My husband even said it was good enough to serve guests. I think I may try cooked turkey in it next time. Oh I added a packet of seasoning from one of the wild rice boxes for extra flavor. Read More
