This was a really nice soup for a rainy day. It needed extra broth, and I added some sage ad a pinch of nutmeg and ginger, and it was lovely. I can't have dairy, so I stirred a lump of soy cream cheese into the finished soup and it was a very nice touch. It needed quite a bit of salt. We had this with homemade artisan bread and it was perfect.
