“This recipe came from somewhere way in my past. It came from a family that my step-sister was going to marry into. It is a very comforting soup. It was originally made with chicken stock, but I made it vegetarian for myself. Great soup. Takes awhile to cook but worth it. Freezes well. Even better the next day.”
