"I changed the amounts of onion and celery so that it tasted more like celery soup than onion soup."

"In addition to living vegetarian, I am serious about gluten free-with that said I used 1/3 cup soy flower and 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream and used a vegetable bouillion cube- threw in corn, frush mushrooms, sweet peppers and brocolli- although I was heavy handed with the sea salt it still had a nice flavor and was light and versatile. Would definitely make again....."
