I really enjoy potato soup, and this rich creamy version is different than most I've tried. I like its lemon and cilantro flavors, but you can adjust the ingredients to best suit your family's taste buds. --Hollie Powell of St. Louis, Missouri

"Will defiantly make again. I used chicken broth instead of vegetable and used fresh parsley from our garden since I had it on hand. Yum!"

"Sorry but this turned out awful, too much pepper flavor. Wast of time and ingredients"

"I have made this recipe several times now. I double the recipe so there is left overs. My family has nick named it the Indian soup because it reminds us of the Indian food we love."

"Loved this soup! I halved the amount of cumin & added 1 teaspoon of Turmeric . This recipe is a definite keeper! I am making this soup again for Easter, but will leave out the cream cheese for my Vegan sister."

"Oh my goodness. This soup was amazing! I'll be honest, I was pretty skeptical when I made it, but the flavors blend beautifully! The soup wasn't too spicy but had a distinct taste. My husband loved it and I will definitely be making this again!"

"I want to give this 4.5 stars....i liked the flavor and texture, and it was a nice meatless meal served in a sourdough breadbowl. However, the husband wasn't "wowed", hence not 5 stars. I think for him, an addition of some sort of meat would have been heartier and a keeper of a recipe. Would make again though, and try a twist next time (maybe ground sausage?)"

"I like the soup, easy to make. Next time I will probably add a little spice, maybe a can of rotel"
