The DH really enjoyed this. He said when he was a kid they would have baked potatoes and gravy and this soup was like the part where the gravy and the hot potato were mushed together. That may have been due to my use of a homemade veggie stock which is much darker/richer than normal - so more like beef. He said he didn't really taste the cilantro all that much but at the same time he wasn't sure whether it needed it or not or....eh!!!! Anyway thanks for a hot soup to warm ya up on a rainy day!! Made for Veg*n Swap Oct '10!!!!
