Very good soup which we changed slightly by using chicken broth and skipped the croutons but served with bread and swiss cheese. I used coconut milk whipping cream which was wonderful in this soup. Thanks for sharing!

I had some fresh dill on hand and used it in addition to all the other ingredients. I also used the coconut milk option which I loved and opted for grilled cheese sandwiches on the side. Thank you Luvcookn for a nice winter meal!

What a delicious soup! I've never tried coconut milk on a "non Thai" recipe. I loved it! Needless to say, the grilled cheese croutons were a SUPER HIT.And the dill....yummmm!!!
