Thank you for the step 8 note about the soup looking curdled because mine did. Now that said this was a nice healthy soup that DH enjoyed as is and I enjoyed kicked up a bit with Sriracha hot chili. Thanks so much for the post.

What a truly wonderful soup. So much flavor from a few healthy ingredients. I made this exactly by the recipe and wouldn't change a single thing. It took the 10 mins to remove the stems and julienned but it was still done in 15 mins. If you are looking for a light weight lunch or starter you have found it! The light touch of lemon really sparkles and since I usually always have spinach I'll be making this often :D

We all liked this a LOT. I had to use dried basil & parsley, and added only 1 T. lemon juice, and about 1/2 c. of cheddar cheese and then thickened the soup with a little cornstarch mixture.
