    I absolutely loved how easy and tasty this recipe was. Instead of using cream I replaced it with evaporated milk and it was delectable. Great for everyday or as a special holiday addition.

    Reminded me of Grandma's soup. Fun and tasty.Calories can be cut by using halfhalf or milk. Just don't use low fat or skimmed. THE TOASTED SEEDS ADD THE FINISHING TOUCH !The men loved it on this frosty day.
