    MilanzMom's Note:

    This recipe was in my local newspaper, but they credit Nava Atlas, "Vegetarian Soups for All Seasons". I made this for dinner tonight. It is easy and quite tasty!

      Made for My 3 Chefs. This was wonderful soup and so satisfying on a cool fall evening. I did add a half pound of ground buffalo 'cause DH has to have some meat in his meal. We will most definitely have this again. Thanks for posting this MilanzMom! Updated 12/19/08 to include stars - just realized that I forgot them! Sorry MilanzMom!
