"Delicious! The only thing I did differently was I chopped up the carrots and celery instead of slicing them."

"This is truly comfort food. It's rich, creamy taste is excellent with crusty French bread. It is great for cold weather, but we love it anytime."

"It is very tasty but this way of cooking is not great because why do we need cook celery and onion not with another weg.? It is easly tp cook together with carrots ets and onion and celery will not be so mashy. I cooked the peas little bit with salt till partly cooked then I have added everything at once."
