This is a great soup, I used sour cream instead of whipping cream, and garnished with green onions .. We like a lighter soup so I used 3 cups of stock ..

Oh Bergy! This is sooooo.......good! My hubby balked at tasting it (he's so picky!) but he really liked it. I made a huge batch to freeze for the winter and he helped me put it in the containers...and when I turned around I caught him licking the spoon! I'd give you ten stars if I could. I did add a touch more orange juice to get the right consistency (and I used orange mango) but other than that this is great as is. Thanks you so much for sharing. I'll definitely be checking your other ecipes!

Did I miss something? I make soup a lot and usually the ratings are spot on, however after making this soup I was disappointed. It was VERY bland... Boring. I had to add a lot of extra stock, orange zest, S&P to get some sort of flavour. I would not make this again. Sorry. Also, note that the quantity is for 2 servings? Not sure why you would make soup for 2 servings?
