I use a similar recipe but use 2% milk and half and half in it. It thickens up quite nicely and has a wonderfully smooth texture. But in my household I havee to make enough for 8 folks.

My husband loved this soup but we used whole milk (or sometimes 2%) and then added some mashed potato flakes to thicken. Of course we made more than 2 servings to have some the next day.

This is one of my favourite soups. Mom use to make it all the time. Try adding a little bit of cream of leek soup to it, just the powder stuff that you can buy at a bulk food store, its good to adds a little bit different flavour to it. But tastse good too.
