I made this soup as a second course for a thanksgiving dinner. You may make it the day before, cover and refrigerate, then just heat before serving. I find this soup a bit mild so when I make it I use 1 tsp curry, 2 small hot peppers finely chopped and 1 tbsp of roasted garlic granules. I omit the cream all together Be sure to puree the soup well so it has a really smooth texture

Excellent recipe! I didn't have any hot peppers, wish I had tho, what a treat! I added 1tsp crushed garlic, 1tsp salt & 1/2tsp pepper and FAT FREE half & half. I also dlbd the recipe as we are a family of 5. Perfect serving size considering the hubby refilled 4Xs! I'd recommend sourdough rolls or Chicken in a Biskit Crackers w/this recipe. Good Eats! Thank you for posting.
