    What a great, surprising recipe! I really liked this. I pureed some for my little ones to hide the veggies and tasted both styles, preferring the non-pureed. I used chicken broth and didnt have an orange to zest, but will add next time. This is a really fun, delicious soup that I look forward to serving to friends. Thanks for the keeper!

    Hi Mike! Thanks for your unusual and great recipe. We had a great meal and my family enjoyed it very much. I used celery root and blood oranges for this recipe!

    My family and I really enjoyed this; it offers a deliciously alternative soup flavour! It was easy to make, too - I even made it fat-free by sauteing in water. It's just fine without the yogurt, too. Thanks for posting!

    Very good and more filling than I expected! Made as directed but forgot the orange zest, parsley and yogurt. Thanks for sharing this delicious soup which we will be making again soon!
