“This recipe is a lighter version of Roasted Garlic/Chicken Soup. It is still very tasty (Well we thought so) I used One Swedish whole wheat small rusk per serving but it would not show in the ingredients - They are apprx. 2 1/2 " by 1" across so I say Rusk in the recipe but they are much larger. I used Knorr Beef Aroma spice but this is another unknown spice so I listed ancho chilli spice- Any of your favorite nippy spice will do. I use a "No Oil" cooking spray but listed it as Pam. I always have roasted garlic ready in my freezer so this soup only takes me minutes to put together”
