Winter Comfort Soup

Leslye Janes


I came up with this in a pinch with what I already have in the house. It is easy and can be adjusted to any taste preference. I keep a lot of dehyderated products on board and I like TONES brand the best when using dehydrated, but you can use fresh equivelants (I do when I have them). I also like a lot of garlic and salt because I have an altered taste situation, so I will not be offended to any adjustment comments. :) It's great for the cold nights and even better the next day.
