Delicious! Easy dinner served with buns & veggie plate. Can be made vegan and served to vegetarians/pretendatarians/meat eaters :) As well, beef broth can be used in place of vegetable broth.

Wow, I thought this soup was delicious! I put in the bacon and the sour cream and it was super tasty. A real hearty and thick soup, just what you need on a cold day.
