    very tasty, creamy soup. The only thing I changed was that I'd grated the courgettes and added them at the end so they weren't overcooked. Thanks for sharing this recipe! - 13 May 2011

    The brie didnt melt in my soup.. so I do not know if the brie in the UK is different than in the states. If I was going to serve this hot, I think I might make a cheese sauce and then stir that in. I was going to serve this as a cold puree so the cheese got blended in that way. The flavor was very good - 02 May 2016
