This is one of my all-time favorite soups. True, it isn't super flavorful, and I do typically like a lot of flavor, but somehow this allows the "creaminess" of the soup to shine. The thicker texture gives it great mouthfeel. I might add a little garlic powder or something, but otherwise I don't change it. It is such a great comfort food, but unlike a lot of comfort foods, it is very healthy. Love it!
