    I love this soup have made it heaps of times now, given it to friends, so delicious, hoarded it for myself! I like to add a few dried apricots too.  -  20 May 2014  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Excellent! I was dubious but my 4 year old request an dinner with pumpkin and banana and here it was. Very tasty, enjoyed all round. I used the whole can of coconut cream just because it was there and I did not have celery but followed the recipe otherwise.  -  02 Feb 2014  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
