    I had a huge zucchini my neighbor gave me from their garden and didn't know what to do with it so I tried this recipe. The only thing I did different was not to put the soup through a strainer. The soup was so good I wanted to lick the bowl! Very refreshing and light - loved it!

    This was very disappointing, very blah. Edible, but nothing to repeat. Maybe try pureeing with fresh basil rather than wilted? Add more salt? Garnish with more sour cream?

    This was fantastic! I substituted the chicken stock for vegetarian stock and added less stock than the recipe called for. The soup turned out more like a bisque. It was quite creamy and delicious!

    I agree with Kayla, very blah. I needed to add garlic, salt, more herbs to make it palatable, otherwise it was just watery tasting.

    Yikes! People either love this soup or hate it. I thought it was interesting and would be very nice as a course for a dinner party. It hasn't any substance as a meal by itself because much of the fiber is discarded. I cut back a little on the broth as someone said it was watery. It is a thin soup. Instead of chili powder I used bottled hot sauce. With a dollop of creme fraiche it looks stunning and guests will be impressed. Tasty! Bring on the next course!
