I don't know about you, but I can eat soup any time doing the year. Even in the eat of summer, soup is for me because you can enjoy it in a cooled off home. The following recipe is very good for all and can be considered a perfect dish for vegetarians as well. For meat eaters, baked chicken on the side is a nice compliment.
