      Another great soup Friedel, come live at my house and cook me soup please! Had guests for lunch today and served this (doubled the recipe). Only change I made was to omit the cornstarch-I felt that with all the stuff in it, including the potatoes, it was naturally thick enough. It's just as Friedel say, subtle, garlicky, creamy, yummy!

      I tried this tonight for dinner as I needed to use up some of the spinach from the garden. It was really good. Everyone liked it! I did make a few changes tho. I added 2 celery stalks, I left out the coriander, as I didn't have any, and I didn't add any double cream as I can't have dairy. Even without the cream the soup was very thick and "creamy". Definitely a keeper!

      I can't get enough of this soup! I have an empty soup bowl in front of me as I type (and that was my second helping).

      I've just made it for about the fourth time. I have this recipe in a veggie cookbook but thought I'd see if it had made it up here to zaar (as I still think of this place) because I want to urge as many people as possible to try it.

      The only thing I do to deviate from recipe as written is put in double the amount of potato.
