      Loaded with flavor, this is great comfort food. I used some homemade chicken broth rather than water and chose to blend only half the soup, leaving some of the vegetables whole. We both enjoyed a dollop of yogurt with the soup. I strongly recommend you add the black pepper a teaspoon at a time as a full tablespoon is a lot of black pepper. No wonder your family has this every Sunday, GT #2. It's delicious.
