    Sackville's Note:

    This simple soup is make extra special and decorative with the cream swirled in at the end to create a pretty pattern. I like it just the way it is, but a clove of garlic probably wouldn't go astray here.

      Good and easy to do. It wasn't as tasty as I had hoped--even with the quantity of parsley. Very pretty color soup, a bright green.

      Easy and delicious! The soup seemed to need a good amount of salt though to bring out the flavor of the parsley. For this one time, I will ignore the cholesterol and saturated fat amount. ;) I used fresh parsley and fresh chives from my herb garden, although I didn't quite have enough curly parsley, so had to throw in some Italian flat-leaf parsley, too. I thought I was being quite the experienced chef using a squeeze bottle to "squirt" the chive cream on top of the soup, but the cream came out of the bottle more like a car backfiring...oh well. Added the garlic when the potatoes (for Americans that's Idaho russets) were added. Thanks for sharing your soup recipe! cg
