Let’s Celebrate National Soup Month!

But this recipe also has some new ingredients, and a couple of problems. One problem: it calls for the addition of white wine. Now, as much as I love wine, I can’t drink it; it gives me ferocious headaches. So, white wine out. It also calls for celery, which is another problem for me because I just cannot abide the taste of cooked celery. So, celery out. Third, the potatoes. I am on a low-carbohydrate diet, and so, following the suggestion of one reader, I decided to substitute chunks of cauliflower instead. Fourth, one key ingredient is cream cheese. Hmmm, that’s unusual. But fortunately, I usually have cream cheese on hand. Fifth, I decided to add chicken stock because I like to layer in that rich flavor.
