This was a good alternative to the usual diary recipes. I was glad I found it and it turned out great for a cold night. I added a bit of nutmeg, because I love the sweetness it adds.

This was excellent. At the last minute I discovered my yam was rotten so I had to sub a russet potato. I'm actually glad I did because I think it might have been too sweet the other way. Coriander (which I rarely use) is what makes this a five-star recipe. I sped things up by using a hand blender and subbing bagel crisps for the croutons. Thanks for this wonderful recipe!
