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.

"The flavor of this soup was delicious but the milk curdled after I added the cheddar cheese :-( What did I do wrong? I added the cheese very gradually on low heat. It was good Tillamook Sharp Cheddar. Thanks!"

"Good recipe, I sub 1can evaporated milk for 1cup of the milk, use 2 tsp dry mustard, 2 tsp nutmeg, gruyere cheese, then work in batches through a blender and add a lashing of heavy cream to finish. Great for everyday or as a first course!"

"I love this recipe!! That said, I do end up at least doubling the spices because I love these flavors and like more of a punch. I also vary with the ratios of things based on what I have. If I don't have milk, I up the broth and use about 1 Cup of heavy whipping cream instead. I've made this soup several times and people eat it up. It's definitely one of my favorites."

"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!"
