    I agree with Kyla, this recipe really benefited from the following additions: Smoked Paprika - about 2tspn (I just kept adding it dash by dash and tasting it as I went, stopping when I got the hint of heat at the back of my throat that I was after) Sage leaves - I used 8x from the garden A dash of liquid smoke Garlic - I added 8x whole Red onion - 2x sliced and wilted with the leaks

    The recipe makes a decent, but bland soup. However, once I added garlic, sage, and paprika, it was really quite delicious.

    Too much cream and butter. Not much taste.
