One of the my favorite things about winter is enjoying a variety of soups. There is something special about coming in from the cold and enjoying a hearty, warm, and delicious bowl of soup. Not soups that come out of a can, sorry Campbell’s, a heart healthy soup that takes a little time to prepare. So today I want to share one of my favorite soups to enjoy on a cold winter day.
