A very nice and warming starter soup in winter, created by me this afternoon, because tonight is "a dark and stormy night"! It's not very thick, it's chock full of nutrients, and an ideal starter to a more substantial meal. Add more potatoes if you like: I didn't want this to be too filling and starchy. Also, I used a tablespoon of a very nice thick chilli-garlic sauce we get here in South Africa, and I'm not sure whether you have an equivalent. So use a hot pepper sauce, preferably the thick salsa type, plus extra garlic. I use chicken stock granules for the broth, not at all salty, so I had to use extra salt. Please taste and adjust seasonings. Number of servings guessed at are starter servings.
