I used to make this soup years ago. It's from "The High Road to Health" by Lindsay Wagner. I rediscovered it recently and it's better than I remembered! I leave the caraway seeds out. (Never have them in the pantry.) Same with the wine. I also serve this as gravy for mashed potatoes. Absolutely delicious!
This was good. I'm eating it right now with tofu mixed in - but without the milk mix. It was good both ways, though, even though I used vanilla soy milk! It smelled great cooking, and I like that unlike some other soups, you've only got a few fresh ingredients to buy. I did need to add some extra water, but I tink next time I'll use broth. The wine definitely does add goodness. All this and it's completely healthy, too!
