This soup was a pleasant surprise; easy to make, filling and delicious! To lighten this a bit I used turkey sausage instead of ground beef and only half the amount; I made up the difference with quartered fresh mushrooms which I sauteed with the other veggies. I was surprised by the addition of the cinnamon - the flavor was subtle but you could really notice it in the aroma of the soup. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
