Thank you Mos for sharing your delicious sounding recipe! I like to use half milk and then half-half cream mixed 50-50 in the recipe. So for this one I’d use 1 c. milk and 1 c. half and half. I don’t know why it makes such a huge difference in taste, but give it a try sometime, I think you’ll really enjoy it. I also like to add bits of leftover veggies to broccoli cream soup (asparagus is my favorite!).

I love this soup and it’s perfect for leftover veggies. When I have a taste for it, I purposely cook extra veggies…giggle…
