"This was an excellent soup! We changed it a little to lighten it some more by using light butter. Instead of halve and halve cream I used regular soy milk. It was a creamy, rich, tasty, and well worth making. Loved it!"

"This was really good! So creamy and comforting on a cold day. I liked the mild curry flavor. It seemed like it could using a little more spicing up, but not sure with what. It made a whole lot. I put a little shredded colby jack cheese on top when I served it, and my whole family enjoyed it."

"Super!!! I've made this twice and I keep forgetting how good this is. I added twice the curry and used a cajun seasoning salt. A litle spicy but the creaminess of it balances it out."

"I am a subscriber- and give the magazines as gifts- I get annoyed that I can't see this recipe because of their bookkeeping records- or lack thereof...
