This is an excellent recipe for all those upcoming Autumn days where the days are short, the nights are long, and the temperature begins dropping. You can vary the spices and veggies to suit your own tastes and serve it large bowls with plenty of fresh-baked crusty bread on the side. I do not have a lot of images for this recipe, but the final image says it all… Yummy. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
