  • About This Recipe

    “I made this soup as a second course for a thanksgiving dinner. You may make it the day before, cover and refrigerate, then just heat before serving.I find this soup a bit mild so when I make it I use 1 tsp curry, 2 small hot peppers finely chopped and 1 tbsp of roasted garlic granules. I omit the cream all together Be sure to puree the soup well soit has a really smooth texture”
