"I used this recipe mainly to find a creamy base for a vegetable soup without using heavy creams. The broth/milk combo made for an excellent base. I used fresh celery, carrots, and onion along with some mixed frozen vegetables. I added pepper and salt for taste."

"My husband & I enjoyed this but I thought it would be ameliorated by the addition of some grated cheese and a pinch of salt."
