Interesting recipe clipped from the Dallas Morning News. I haven't made this yet but wanted to make sure I didn't lose.

This was such an amazing soup! I had a luncheon for some vegetarian friends, and this was the main star. I definately recommend both pureeing & using the sieve as stated, for it has such a delicate consistancy when you do. I used broth in lieu of water to give it a tad more depth. My guests liked it so much that they will use it as a starter for their Thanksgiving dinner.

  2. Stir in potatoes, apples, water, wine, 1/4 teaspoons thyme, salt, pepper and cayenne. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes, until the vegetables are very soft.
