In my eternal quest for simple, healthful foods that all the picky eaters will enjoy, I made this one tonight and so am saving it here for posterity. With one kid trying to gain weight, another trying to lose, a third who despises tomato-based soups and a fourth who likes only candy and eggs, it is tough. Remembering that they all eat the soup at our local pizza shop (why is all food better when it comes from a pizza shop?), I did a copycat version myself, and they gobbled it up. A tip of the hat to the late Linda McCartney, whose soup recipe I changed to come up with this.
