I love recipes like this one... Few steps with predictable results - it’s a keeper. It also makes enough to feed a substantial sized group. This would be easy to add other veggies to - and even leftover holiday ham. Jamie’s claims were true - it takes less than an hour and everyone loves it.
I stumbled upon this terrific recipe while browsing through my favorite food blogs. Jamie of jamiecooksitup.blogspot.com has a fun site with very practical, down-to-earth recipes that my family would love. I found this one the day after Thanksgiving and tried it with turkey sandwiches. Yum!
I did add a few more bouillon cubes (because I don’t like to have to hunt for the S&P shakers). But I DO need some advice... how in the world do you peel those miserable little wrappers off so MANY bouillon cubes?! By the time I peeled twelve I was ready to pull my hair out! Suggestions anyone?
I also added about a cup of diced celery for a little more interest, texture, and color. This recipe is similar to a Broccoli Cheese soup we have enjoyed for years - but I liked the fact that you didn’t add the cooking water with the vegetables. That makes the texture much more predictable! Thanks Jamie...
