Just like home, this soup is comforting especially on a cold day.
I also enjoy this wholesome soup when potatoes are ready to harvest in July or August.
This is a hearty meal that is easy to make and can be made when you’re rushed for time.
It is wonderful by itself or served with crackers, fresh baguettes or homemade bread such as Quick Oven Baked Bread.
Make plenty; this soup is a big hit.
