First time making a vegetarian soup. This is a classy soup. Easy to prepare, and oh so healthy. Great with a piece of whole grain bread. The curry gives it a nice little tangy taste - not overpowering, and the dill is sublime. Will be making this again and agian this winter. Thanks again Uncle Bill!
