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!

Double cream is heavy whipping cream in the U.S.

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.

Awesome!

this is a wonderful soup!! Made it a few days ago and looking forward to making it again. I didn't have fresh spinach, used frozen one and added it with chickpeas. Thank you for the recipe!!

Delicious! My husband said, "Put this on your list to make again!" To reduce the fat content, I used skim milk instead of cream.

Really wonderful soup for a cold (-14 degrees here) winter's night! The only changes I made were to use chicken broth and to add some sliced turkey kielbasa along with the spinach (hubby must have some meat). I served it with some Thai chili garlic sauce and crusty Ciabatta bread. I will definitely be making this again and will probably use it as a company recipe in the future. It's the perfect consistency and the spinach adds a beautiful color.

This is very very good. My DH and son who tend to be a bit picky enjoyed it. Thank you.

This is a wonderful vegetarian soup. My entire family loved it. I left out the cornstarch because I don't like thickeners in my soup- so it was a thinner base.

This was wonderful. I didn't have any tahini so substituted 3-4 tablespoons of Costco hummus. Used a variety of vegetables I had including carrots, potatoes sweet potatoes and some mushrooms. Didn't have any double cream but added a dollup of sour cream after I served it and it was very yummy. My daughter who is the picky eater came back for seconds. Thanks for a great (and easy) recipe.
