This was printed in a local paper here in PDX. This is an amazing soup to serve with crusty bread on a winter day. It is also a wonderful topping for rice, pasta or meat.

This soup is delicious!! I just finished making it and had to have some.I didn't have hungarian paprika so I used the regular paprika. I used frozen parsley, its almost like fresh. I don't think it will get to the freezer. It warms your inners...its good. A keeper!

I used about half the amout of flour they recommend, (and there's no salt amount listed) but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. There were nice globs of unmixed sour cream which was nice. It could use a little complexity, but it was nice.

Very tasty soup! I used just 2 Tbsp of butter and low-fat sour cream which did not adversely affect the taste or texture. Also I used half smoked paprika and half regular, which was very good. I'm going to get fresh dill next time, that was the only thing that I thought really should be changed. And it does freeze well - BF didn't like it (he is all wrong!!!) so I had to freeze some for later and it was fine when I thawed it out. Thanks for the recipe!
