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!
