I added mushrooms and I think 2 carrots might be better. It was good but do think it could use more spices like thyme or rosemary.
Awesome! Great recipe. I have made at least 3 times since I found in my email! If you add flour and cook for a few minutes in the butter and vegetables it makes a roux, it won't have the flour taste.
I followed the recipe exactly, except for the fact that I noticed their wasn't any spices so I added some rosemary and thyme. Even so, I found the soup to be quite bland. It was as if all I was tasting was the flour. Next time I'd use cornstarch as it doesn't have the flavour of flour. I did mix the flour with water because I was worried about dumping dry flour into a pot with only carrots and onions. And of course, I'd add more seasonings to it.
An earthy comfort food, this recipe has been a family favorite for several years. We love this on cold winter days with fresh baked dinner rolls.
I made it exactly as the recipe stated but omitted the chicken and added a variety of mushrooms. Also added a little bit of white wine. Excellent to have on a cold winter day.
