"Quick and easy to make on a chilly day. Great for using up left over frozen holiday turkey."

"Six inches of snow and below 0 temps - Perfect for a cold winter evening. I, too, saute minced garlic with my vegetables, used left-over turkey and evaporated milk to cut calories. You could even add egg noodles or orzo pasta if desired. Have made gluten free for hubby by substituting the flour (no noodles)."

"Good! Added garlic to the veggies when I sauteed them. Also added some parsley. Used my leftover turkey & carrots from when I had made turkey broth (from a smoked turkey). Took reviewers advice advice and used fat free evaporated milk. Might add some Mrs. Dash next time for a little more seasoning."

"Used this as a base, boiled drumsticks and a thigh to make broth. Added more of the veggies than suggested some garlic and evaporated milk. Water to right consistancy. Looked like photo. Very,very good."

"I was really craving a creamy, chunky vegetable soup, and you'd be surprised how difficult it is to find a recipe online (most call for pureeing in a blender). I came across this recipe and it served as the perfect base for my improvised soup. Thank you!"
