Kathy this soup is delicious, my picky dh & I really enjoyed it. The texture is smooth and silky, it has a velvet type thickness, not too heavy or light, simply perfect. The fresh flavor is outstanding. Best of all, its quick and easy to make, with excellent results. I garnished the soup with finely grated lemon rind and creamy feta cheese. They were the perfect addition, working beautifully with the soup. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe, it has gone into my soup cookbook for future use.
