    Kiwiwife's Note:

    This comes from my favorite cookbook, Vegetarian cooking for everyone by Deborah Maddison. I LOVE this soup. It is earthy & so satisfying. I make it at least once a month and wanted to post for nutrition info! This soup gets better as it sits!

      This turned out a little bland. I thought for sure that it would be rich and flavorful because of the vinegar and dijon, but I'm thinking that maybe I should have added more than a tablespoon of each as the recipe indicates. Also, I did this in the slowcooker so I really though the flavors would have come out more. I think I'd make this again, but would probably add some fresh thyme and more dijon to jazz it up a bit.

      I absolutely LOVED this soup! I followed the recipe as written, just adding a little garam masala. I loved the dijon mustard and red wine vinegar flavor. I think that fresh parsley is the best way to go with this recipe. I used extra fresh parsley for garnish. Thanx for sharing!

      I experimented by adding parsnips, cream and tarragon. I used veg stock instead of water. I left out the celery. It's -10°C (15°F) here today and this soup is a perfect winter warmer and easy to prepare. It's very filling and has a great texture. When you add cream I think it looks better too. The original recipe may have been a little bland, but all the more reason to experiment and see what other flavours will work. But all in all it's a very nice soup. Thanks for sharing.
