Very good & easy to make. Since I did not have Saffron Threads in the house, I substituted Turmeric. Also, instead of just simmering it for 15 minutes, I had to make it come to a boil, then cook it on med-high for 5 minutes, for it to reach the correct consistency.
This was VERY simple which I loved!!! I added a bit of garlic to ours...gotta have that in everything it seems and I prinkled cheese on top. So yum!
This soup was superb. It was very easy to make. What a reward for such little effort. I served this with “Simple Tomato Sandwich” Simple Tomato Sandwich. A match made in heaven! Thank you!
