I tweeked this a bit by adding the whole can of tomato paste and a bit of hotsauce. I also used yogurt instead of creme fraiche. It was terrific. Nice thick comfort type soup. Thanks Chef Dudo

A very filling soup, and just right for a cold winter's night.

Unfortunately I can only give this 5 stars. It is so wonderful! The garlic of course produces a wonderful mellow flavor. I used my blender to puree the soup. Served with Parmesan and Basil Scones #95807 for a wonderful first course.
