The garnish is what makes this soup to die for. Don't skip it! I can't recall where I got this recipe from originally, but I adapted it in my vegan/vegetarian years to the recipe below. This can easily be prepared non-vegan style by using butter instead of margarine and half and half instead of soy creamer. If you're a vegan opposed to honey, try using agave nectar instead.
