MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 7, 2012

"I've loved this recipe from the very first time I made it! The variety of veggies makes it a very pretty soup, and of course there is the health benefit of getting all the nutrition from them. Because this isn't slow cooked, while the flavors do blend a bit, they do not meld, so there is still their own distinct tastes in every bite. The thin milk "broth" has just a very light suggestion of cheesiness, and a touch of the veggies comes through, as well. It's a very appealing dish, distinctly different from every other soup I make."
