      We LOVED this soup. So easy to prepare and so flavourful! We ate it hot, and the only change I made was to add a dollop of cream to the soup, after I'd ladled it into bowls, rather than put the cream in the soup during cooking. I garnished with a sprinkle of salt and cracked pepper and a small sprig of rosemary. Delicious!

      I was also looking for quick nutritious lunch when I found this recipe.. I also used 2 cloves of garlic and with no light cream here either I used just 1/2 cup of full cream instead. YUM !.. I did have mine hot,.. and this is an excellent fill-me-up-and-tasty-on- a-winter's-day recipe and I will definiatly be making it regularly. Please see my rating system: a wonderful 4 stars for a simple to make and yummy recipe. Thanks!
