Chock-full of potatoes, this vegetarian soup is as filling as it is flavorful. Serve on cold winter nights with crusty bread or take a thermos-full to work; with this in store, you'll really look forward to lunch! —Hannah Thompson, Scotts Valley, California

"This is an easy, delicious soup recipe. The only changes I made were using an Italian Herb mix from Natural Grocers because I didn't have just marjoram or thyme on hand. The herb mix seemed to work really well. I would recommended planning for a longer cook time or putting the crock pot on high if you live in a higher altitude. The carrots and potatoes needed more time and had to be finished in a pot on the stove when I followed the recommended time. I served this with crusty bread as recommended, and the kids loved it!"

"This recipe is great! However I've been cooking it on a stove top instead of a crock pot. I boil the potatoes, and carrots for 5 minutes in the vegetable broth. Then I plop in rest of the ten ingredients. It takes another 10 minutes for the potatoes and carrots to get soft. Add the peas, cream and flower mixture and stir till combined. Let it cook for 15 more minutes on medium heat then BAM thank you ma'am."

"This soup was amazing! I am so confused by the reviews that said this had no taste. The only thing I did different from the instructions with use my own homemade vegetable stock, replace the peas with broccoli and cauliflower (not a fan of peas unless fresh from the garden) and used heavy whipping cream instead of half-and-half. As an additional little treat, I tossed some oyster crackers with butter, rosemary, thyme, and salt and baked them for about 10 minutes to use as soup topping! It was really quite delicious and I plan to make this around Christmas when the whole family is in town!"

"I burnt my tongue because I wanted to eat this too fast - yum! I made the soup on the stove top and add sliced sausage links. I also sauteed the onion (leek) and garlic in the butter before adding to the soup so that the flavors would start to develop. Highly recommend!"

"After a few modifications I can honestly say that this is my new favorite soup recipe. I used better than bullion chicken stock and used fresh herbs rather than dry. I used several garlic cloves and sautéed the garlic and leeks before adding the other ingredients. I never added the cream, flour or peas because I loved the flavor so much. It is wonderful and I look forward to sharing with friends and family"

"It was bland for my taste and my daughter said it was bitter. It was an easy

soup to make in the crockpot and I liked that it was full of vegetables but unfortunately it wasn't a recipe to make again in our home.i sadly threw out the leftovers."

"So yummy! Used yellow onion in place of leeks. Sprinkled some shredded cheddar in bowl before serving. Made on top of the stove. Great comfort food on a cold day!"

"This is a really simple soup, quite flavorful. I loved it, my daughter liked the broth and my son ate his. So all in all a good meal for us. I did use chicken broth instead of veggie broth though."
