This winter warming soup is one of our favorite recipes. Perfect for the cold winter months, we serve it at catered events, but it can also be easily made at home for family dinners. For a heartier soup, you can also add kale, spinach, carrots, or any fresh vegetables you may have on hand. It is healthy and sure to warm you up on those cold winter nights.
