Excellent soup - made with crème fraiche instead of cream cheese, very tasty - 11 Aug 2013
Really nice soup. I added an onion & a clove of garlic to the pan while the courgette was cooking & finished off with a grating of blue Stilton. Delicious, glad I made it for tea! It actually reminded me a little of broccoli soup, but probably nicer :-) - 31 Jul 2014
