Review for Cilantro and Squash Flower Soup

I made this last night. I couldn't believe how good it was! I thought that the amount of cilantro was going to make it overpowering, but it was just right. I would add another chili pepper because I couldn't taste it at all (but I had substituted a pepper with a slightly sweet taste). I will be gathering flowers from my squash plant for the next few days so I can make this for my family on Thanksgiving!

Review for Cilantro and Squash Flower Soup

The taste is unbelievable! The mixture of cilantro and the flowers blend very well together. The chili gives it a spicy flare. Must try it!
