This was delicious. Had to substitute tomato paste for tomato juice, and threw in the whole can of coconut milk. Used 2 bullion cubes. Will definitely make this again.

As I made this soup recipe I was pretty sure I would not like it. How could all these flavors meld? Well boy was I surprised.when I tasted it. It was one of the best winter soups I have ever made.Now The potatoes were a little crisp and I had cooked it over the suggested. I might suggest she suggest the size of the cubed potato . same for the celery. Still this soup is wonderful. Thanks Red Jenny.Made for spring 2013 PAC
