The flavor of this soup was really surprising to me, in that I didn't think something based on a single vegetable could really be so good! However, I thought it was WAY too heavy, just too much cream. And this is from a person whose favorite soup recipe starts with bacon and ends with cream. I also didn't particulary enjoy the rosemary/ginger seasoning. The recipe is good as is, but I made a version last night that will now become part of my regular rotation. It was awesome! I added a small green apple, peeled, seeded, and diced. I omitted the salt (the broth makes it plenty salty), the ginger, and the rosemary. Instead I used 2 tsp. of garam masala. Oh man, does that stuff do WONDERFUL things for this soup! I substituted 2 cups half and half for the cream, and it was perfect. Rich and creamy without being heavier than lead. Overall, this recipe was a good starting point, so thanks for that!
