When I created this soup at the last minute for an impromptu ice skating party, it was a hit. This is a good solid meal in and of itself. Just serve it with a crusty loaf of bread and you'll be warm inside and out.

"Just made this soup and found it to be one of the best soups I have ever had! I only thing I left out was the curry only because I don't like it. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious! My friends love it too! Thank you so much for sharing!"

"This is an easy recipe which provides a fantastic soup. My daughter in law does not like to try different vegetable recipes. She tried this and absolutely loved it. I may cut back on the onion a bit though. This is a great soup for type 1 diabetics to have for lunch."

"This is very nummy! I didn't have cayenne and omitted the curry. Did cinnamon in place like someone else suggested. And melted down a sharp cheddar cheese spread instead of shredded cheese (doing all the same steps with the flower, butter and milk). So easy to make!"
