This is so yummy, so creamy and an excellent hearty soup for winter! There are many variations, I like this one, mine (uh em) best. It tends to thicken as it sits, so your leftovers, you may want to add a bit of chicken of vegetable stock to thin a bit. Believe me, don't skip the fried pita bread, or substitute croutons, the fried pita really makes this soup! Enjoy!
