Step 5

What a delicious easy recipe! Took your suggestion about the cream, but used all whipping cream and a low sodium vegetable cube. When I make this again I will be using fresh thyme. Thanks for sharing Ellie! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag. UPDATE 6/25/20: I have made this many times and it always elicits oohs & ahhs around the table. Thank you for an awesome recipe Ellie!
