    This is my first recipe review I've ever written - I had to because it was so wonderful! My son is into experimenting with vegetables (he's on a health kick) now we both love roasted brussel sprouts, but that's the only way... This soup was fantastic! I followed the recipe exactly and it was fabulous. I did experiment afterwards with separate bowls and tried more hot sauce - not for me. Also tried sherry because I saw it in another recipe while looking for a brussel sprout soup. I actually did like the sherry addition, son didn't......But as I said following the recipe exactly was great. Another thing I might try to lighten it up is leave out the last 3 tablespoons of butter.... <br/>but again perfect as is!

    Delicious!! I would never have thought of making a cream soup with these--what a nice surprise! I added a little bit of onion powder and garlic powder. I'd be willing to bet that the two members of my family who say they don't like this vegetable would never know what was in this soup if they weren't told. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

    I had never had Brussels sprouts in a soup before and I was surprised how tasty and delicious it was. I deviated slightly from the recipe by adding a spare potato and a head of broccoli that I had lying around. I used low fat evaporated milk and omitted the cream, butter and salt. I was generous with the Tabasco and pepper and the result was truly delicious. My friend pronounced it restaurant quality. He professes to hate Brussels sprouts so I just said it was cream of broccoli and potato. This is a win/win situation. Thank you.

    This was divine. It was the best cream of brussels sprouts soup I have ever had, and I will absolutely make this again and again and again. I did deviate slightly from the recipe. Step 6 says to simmer for about 5 mins. I thought this was a bit too long because it was getting extremely thick, so I only let it simmer about 2 minutes. Also, I forgot to add the Tabasco, and mine was flavorful enough that salt and pepper weren't required. Thank you, Tish, this was GREAT!!!! I am sure even people that hate brussels sprouts would love this soup.
