Excellent soup, Member katherinelynn04

I first had this a few years ago at a party. We made it as several of the guests are GF. It's a very hearty soup, and is great as the main dish. If you find that it's too salty (as one reviewer noted) you can add a peeled potato, cut in half, to the soup while cooking (or even while it's in the fridge). Remove the potato before serving. It will soak up the extra sodium.
