Broccoli enhances this healthy soup with crunch, while a bit of bacon lends a salty richness.

This turned out very good. I added a little bit of dried rosemary instead of thyme. I also added grated sharp cheddar in the end which added a nice bite.

So easy and tasted great - Creamy and great texture, did not do any extra blending except the stirring while cooking. I always love cooking onions in bacon grease too :)

I would use hand-held mixer to produce a creamier soup and I would add two cloves of garlic

I usually use my hand blender to blend this a little before serving. The potato, once blended, makes for a nicer texture. I also add a bit of whatever fresh herbs I have on hand instead of the dried thyme. I've used thyme, rosemary and chives.

I did not like this recipe. I made no changes, but I found the texture and flavor of the soup base to be bleh, and the overall product to be boring, bland, and unbalanced in texture.

Great soup. Quick and easy. Next time I make it I will add a bit more spice though.

This soup is lovely. Made it last night and my seven year old went on and on about it (kind of uncharacteristic) and wanted to take it in his lunch to school today. Easy, wholesome, delicious--not heavy. Loved it!
