This soup was deelish. I mixed it up a bit and added half a VERY large carrot, and instead of the seasoning (sage, clove, cinnamon) I briefly brewed a chai tea bag in the veg broth. I was feeling adventurous I guess, but it turned out WONDERFULLY aromatic. We ate it with a light salad & some bread for dipping. Yummm. It will def go into my list of regular soups :) Esp for the fall!


YUM!! delicious on a cool fall day.


This was really good. I did not have cloves, but it still turned out great and lasted me a very long time.
