Can be prepared up to four days in advance. Simple and easy what more could you ask for. This Is a great lunch or a light dinner. Serve with pita bread or pita chips. You can buy roasted red peppers in a jar.
The original idea for this recipe came from Rachel Ray. LOVE LOVE this snack. It is great to take with you where ever, hikes, long trips, in your desk, or even as a snack when the kids come home from school. Substitute any dried fruit and/or change the nuts to suit your taste. You can even change it around and just make it into granola.
This recipe came from somewhere way in my past. It came from a family that my step-sister was going to marry into. It is a very comforting soup. It was originally made with chicken stock, but I made it vegetarian for myself. Great soup. Takes awhile to cook but worth it. Freezes well. Even better the next day.
