I like cozy comfort soups that taste creamy—without the cream. This one’s full of good stuff like rutabagas, leeks, fresh herbs and almond milk. —Merry Graham, Newhall, California

"Hi Jeani_Coleman,

The balls are about 1 tsp in size (see the directions step 1). There are 12 tsp in 1/4 cup and then you're adding 4 1/2 tsp of herbs. You should be able to get 14 nice size balls out of that."

"I haven't made this yet but how can you make 14 balls out of 1/4 cup butter. Something is not right. The butterball in the picture looks like it's at least 1 Tbs which would yield only 4."
