This soup is creamy and thick and the flavor actually improves if allowed to stand a few hours before serving. Very the herbs as your supply or inclinations allow. Small pieces of dried jerky or bacon bits are very good added to it, too. With a salad, it makes a pleasing simple lunch or supper, particularly on a chilly day. The recipe doubles nicely too.
