Potage – Cream of Spring Vegetable Soup

This is a beautiful soup, simple and a sneaky way to get almost anyone to eat their vegetables – and eat them, they will, and they’ll darned well like them – prepared like this! 🙂 The subtle flavoring lends a gorgeous background note without overwhelming the delicate vegetables. It’s just enough to make you want to taste again and again while wondering “Just what is in this?”

This old-fashioned recipe, Turkey or Chicken Newburg is a family fave…simple, comforting, delish. Think of this when you have leftover chicken or turkey – it’s a part of my “Twelve Days of Turkey” posting.
