Quick, easy and delicious. I added a small dollop of RF Sour-cream and sprinkled with powdered ginger for a "wow presentation". Served with a crusty bread, it was the perfect light lunch I was looking for. Thank you!
Great Vegetarian/Vegan thickened soup with full flavor; true comfort food. I added a cup of leftover canned pumpkin to the brew too. For step #2, I cooked it in my crock pot on low for 4-5 hours. It smelled heavenly cooking. Made for Spring PAC 2009.
