    The first time I tasted it it was OK, but as soon as I added a dollop of sour cream, it seemed to change the whole context of the soup. The second time it was very good.

    Yummy! But I don't see the point of the carrots, you can't really taste them.

    I have prepared this for two seasons now for my mother who has diabetes. It freezes wonderully and tastes great (if you are squash lover!)
