  • Reviews

  • “This is a great soup, I used sour cream instead of whipping cream, and garnished with green onions .. We like a lighter soup so I used 3 cups of stock ..”

  • “Oh Bergy! This is sooooo…….good! My hubby balked at tasting it (he’s so picky!) but he really liked it. I made a huge batch to freeze for the winter and he helped me put it in the containers…and when I turned around I caught him licking the spoon! I’d give you ten stars if I could. I did add a touch more orange juice to get the right consistency (and I used orange mango) but other than that this is great as is. Thanks you so much for sharing. I’ll definitely be checking your other ecipes!”

  • “Really nice recipe… I even got the carrot haters in the bunch to eat it! Thanks for posting.”

  • “This is an excellent soup! We LOVED it including DH who’s not a soup person! Wonderful blend of flavours. I used a mixture of onion and spring onions and I used spring onions for garnish too. Thank you, Bergy, for sharing this wonderful recipe, definitely will be making it again! :)”
