"This creamy and comforting soup is a terrific way to warm up on a cold or rainy day," writes Sherry McKellar of Springville, Utah. Hearty bowls featuring tender potatoes and asparagus get a special touch when topped with bacon and cheddar cheese.
My husband and I first enjoyed this soup on a tour of Bavaria. When I asked for the recipe, it was delivered to our table, written in English—but with no amounts for any of the ingredients! After a few trials, I got it "right" and forwarded the recipe to several of the people that were in our tour group.
This is our favorite vegetable soup recipe. I got it from a friend and made some changes to make it lighter. It is quick, colorful and satisfying—and you would never know it's low-fat! —Denise Mayer, Modesto, California
