Reviews for Roasted Pepper Potato Soup
"This was quite yummy. The lemon juice really brightened the flavor. It's a keeper!"
"This was surprisingly very good!! Definitely will make again."
"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"
"A great soup, we all loved it! Will be making it again, thank you!"
"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"
