      This is the perfect winter soup, very warming and soo delicious! I made 1.5x the recipe and used better-than-bouillon for my broth, adding in some Merlot wine from an open bottle on the counter. I'm glad I did- it was a perfect contrast to the other flavors (my pic might have a darker color than normally because of that). This will be added to my fall/winter soup rotation. Thanks so much Nicole [Made for I Recommend Tag]

      This was excellent. Easy to prepare and quite quick, full of flavour, both DH and DD were very appreciative of this and I will definitely make it again. I did use garlic and herb stock cubes rather than the granules, but otherwise, as directed. I had made the croutons from this recipe previously, for another soup, also very good and easily prepared.
      Thank you for sharing this very good recipe, Nicole.
