Fantastic soup!  Would allow for many additions and substitutions:  kale, spinach, celery, corn, faux-chicken, soy curls, a dash of liquid smoke, a few shakes of Creole seasoning, pasta, rice, a bit of sour cream.  I can hardly wait to make another batch!


This soup is very tasty and filling. It makes A LOT of soup! Thank you for sharing this!
