Tip!

Make it spicy! Chili, cumin and other spices all pair beautifully with this soup. Freshly grated ginger, added a few minutes before serving, also brings a whole new depth of flavor.

    When I clicked on the highlighted word Turnip in the ingredient list I was taken to wikipedia's page about kohlrabi. Why? Is the recipe supposed to call for kohlrabi instead of turnip or is kohlrabi a turnip substitute? I love your recipes and have made quite a few of them. Keep up the great work!

    I made this tonight for my family of five. There were definitely a lot of flavors in it but not one person liked it. I ended up dumping it down the drain. What a waste!

    My husband and I had this for supper last night. It was delicious (but we dressed it with double cream and not mayonnaise).

    I left out the lime juice and added some nutmeg and a swirl of cream. A lovely simple, warming soup that turns out silky smooth - we loved it. Making it as a starter for a dinner party this weekend.
