This is a very low fat soup. No one will ever know. Try adding diced ham or bacon.

Very bland. Did not like it at all. I'm a real soup nut and will make a big pot of soup to have on hand or freeze. I ended up throwing it away. Read More

The first time around I almost threw it away when I added the milk because I thought I screwed it up royally but all I had to do was wait a few more minutes and keep stirring. Make sure you keep stirring and give it time. This soup is great because it's creamy and thick while still being low-fat. I tend to add a good amount of black pepper and garlic powder and it makes a big difference. Just a touch of cheese on the top and it's a filling meal that everyone enjoys. Read More

This is the first soup I've made and it was fantastic! I did alter it a little though after reading some of the reviews. Instead of water I used chicken broth and did about 1 1/2 cups. I also scratched the celery and used broccoli and took out the powdered milk and used red potatoes. At the end after I added the flour/milk mixture I also added a handful of grated sharp cheddar cheese and a little garlic. I do have the gritty taste others were mentioning but I think that is due to the potatoes sitting for so long...as a potato lover I can't complain though! Read More

This is good. I wanted a thicker soup because I was serving it in bread bowls so after cooking the potatoes and vegetables I partially blended it in the food processor. We felt like the soup was missing a little something but I didn't add the chicken bullion so that might be what it was. I also left out the dry milk powder because we didn't have any. Next time I would like to try using chicken broth instead of water to boil the vegetables. We enjoyed this recipe. I will make it again. Read More
