Early in winter, I make up big pots of this hearty soup to freeze in plastic containers. Then I can bring out one or two containers at a time. I heat the frozen soup in a saucepan on low all morning. By lunchtime, it's hot and ready to serve! —Ann Main, Moorefield, Ontario
"This hearty soup calls for a lot of fresh herbs to enhance the flavor of the other ingredients," shares Edie DeSpain of Logan, Utah. The aroma while it is cooking is absolutely wonderful. I like to serve steaming bowls alongside a green salad and baking powder biscuits."
