“This is a soup that is know as my way or in another case your way soup! When making soup, I always start with some sort of base. It can be just about any type of broth, juice or what ever you would like to use, just so the flavor is not fighting against itself! This can be made on the stove top. It is the best in a crock pot, which is the way I always made soup. It does a better job of blending all the flavors. Though is takes a longer period of time, just do a little planning ahead, the soup always turns out with the best taste.”
