I started out to make someone else's soup today but found I didn't have all the right ingredients and couldn't go shopping because of the weather--snowed in! So I improvised and came up with a totally different soup which is SO YUMMY! It is so filling you don't really need anything to go with it. Hope you'll give it a try!
