Excellent! Definitely a keeper. Next time I will double the batch so we can have seconds. I used my homemade chicken stock so there was no need to add salt to the broth. The wine I used was a very nice little 2000 Haut Medoc, then we drank the rest with soup. Finished off this meal with some toasted slices of Chef Marg@Cayman Designs Whole Wheat French Bread Whole Wheat French Bread which has become our favorite. This soup was easy to make and has lots of flavor. This would be an excellent soup to serve as a first course for any dinner party. Thanks for posting.
