Expert Tips

For a heartier soup, add 1 medium potato cut into cubes.

For a different flavor, use deboned chicken meat, ham or bacon.

  • 2 Transfer to a blender and process, being careful not to burn yourself.

This creamy soup recipe is perfect for those cool days now that the temperatures are starting to drop in our part of the world. I make soup whenever I can because it’s so comforting and it reminds me of the soups my mother used to make. You can adjust this recipe to give it the desired consistency: if you prefer it to be more creamy, simply add a little more heavy cream or milk and you’ll give it a different and delicious touch. Try it and make it how you like!
