"This was a tasty soup. I added some salt and pepper as well as a bit more curry. I also used chicken instead of ham. Leftover turkey could be used too!"

"Tasty. I made it with leftover baked acorn squash. I also added a bit more curry, some fresh ground pepper, and some sea salt. Served with a sprinkle of shredded Parmesan cheese and ground pepper. A great way to use leftover squash! Very creamy and satisfying."

"I have made this several times - most of the time without the ham. The buttermilk is the key ingredient. It is a real crowd pleaser - especially with a spoonful of sour cream on top and some chopped parsley."
