A pretty red colored, earthy flavored soup. This can be made through step 2 and refrigerated or frozen for future use. Thaw and proceed with step 3. The servings listed is for a large bowl, as the only item served. If making for a soup course (smaller servings) I would cut recipe in half. Serve with hot bread or rolls. I have also made this without adding the milk. It is thicker but tastes richer.
