Using the US measurements, I cut this recipe in half for two people. The only changes I made was using Kuri winter squash that I had on hand instead of carrots, and I used 1 Tablespoon nonfat dry milk mixed with 1/2 cup 2 percent milk instead of the cream that I did not have. I love this soup either hot or cold and with or without a dollop of sour cream or Crème Fraîche and will make it again especially for company. Also, I trimmed the ends and strings from the sugar snap peas before cooking.
