    Terrific rich and creamy soup! I used around half the amount of cream while cooking and added a dollop when serving. Also skipped the straining step, just processed well and really enjoyed the texture.

    Really enjoyed. We added a chopped yam to the vegetables. Instead of adding the cream to the soup we put a tablespoon into the bowl and stirred to the top. (lower fats and calories.) We also added chopped basil garnish. Loved the gingery snap to it.
