Love this soup! Added more carrot, and used a combo of homemade turkey stock and chicken broth. Only had two garlic cloves, so I added a half teaspoon of garlic powder. Threw in four slices of fresh jalapeño. Used the immersion blender and made some naan-flavored bread in my ABM to go with it. Yum!
