This is a spectacular recipe! I have given it to so many people and everyone of them has added this to their regular rotation of family recipes. Even my mother-in-law, who is a total food snob, broke down and asked me for this recipe! Enjoy.
This is a great, healthy soup my husband and I have enjoyed a few different times. I always make it with canned tomatoes as that is usually what I have on hand. I also add more seasonings (about double what is called for) as we like spice. Nothing could be more perfect on a chilly day!
