This is a nice light soup that is best served with warm bread and a fresh salad.
Altered ingredient amounts. I doubled up the ingredients as i didn't think it made an awful lot. - 31 Mar 2009
A lovely recipe,although i went for a healthier option without the cream and was still gorgeous - 31 Mar 2009
This soup is very good and healthy. I took advice of other reviewer and used the coconut milk instead of heavy cream, I think it would be really bland without it. The directions said to strain the vegetables and throw away excess vegetable broth?! This makes no sense thats where the vitamins are not to mention I bought good stock and it is not cheap. So I used less broth, I used enough to cover the vegetables which is how it is supposed to be in the end. I actually used half of the stock called for in the recipe. Instead of straining and separating it I did what I always do with this type of soup recipe and used a hand held blender and put it in the pot and zapped the whole lot. Save the vitamins and work!!. - 20 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
