Very good, so good my GD and I polished off the pot (and it was a big one) between the two of us. I did add one grated carrot for a touch of color. Made for RS#46.

just what we needed for a cooler Spring day and a great way to use up my leftover ham I had in the freezer, we really enjoyed this wonderful soup, I did a few amount adjustments and also added crushed chili flakes, thanks for sharing Elaine!

This soup was different and very good. It was added to my list of comfort foods. I had leftovers for lunch and it reheated nicely. I will definitely make this again. Thank you!
