Recipe by Alskann

This is a Better Homes & Garden recipe. Wonderful flavors. I like to serve it with a dollop of creme fraiche on top of each serving.

Top Review by Sydney Mike

Made half a recipe for some vegetarian neighbors, & they were most pleased with it (& so was I 'cause I kept a bowl of it for myself)! Subed vegetable broth for the chicken broth, & used curry powder & finely minced lemon zest! Definltely a recipe to keep around! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]
