This creamy soup recipe is one of my favorites for this time of the year. You might be surprised to find how many combinations and uses this creamy soup has. Like a lot of recipes, you can adapt this one and make an entirely vegetarian dish using a vegetable broth base. You can also add a chunk of ham to give it a different. The result will always be delicious!

You can also add 1/2 cup of cooked pumpkin.

You can use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. You can also use 2 cubes chicken bouillon diluted in 5-6 cups of water.

Directions
