This soup is so delicious that I was making it twice a week and eating everyday for lunch! I'm posting it with the alterations I made. It has a rich hearty, smokey, earthy flavor, that is so irresistible! And its low fat too! This is a soup I found on the Internet. It was posted by a wonderful cooked known as Fizzle3nat. The photo is my own.
