      Tasty, buttermilk adds a nice tang. I expected it to be brown when the red and green were blended, but it's a rosy color with dark green flecks, very pretty. There is a half cup of broth unaccounted for in the instructions, so I added it at the end. It might possibly have blended more smoothly had I added it all at the same time.

      very simple to make. Used vegetable stock instead of chicken so it could be a vegetarian recipe. Substituted more vegetable stock for the milk and butttermilk to lower the fat a little. Delicious soup.
