If you enjoy eating soup as much as I do, try this recipe. The four liters of soup produced by the recipe are ideal for freezing or canning. Warm up with a bowl for lunch or a light dinner paired with your favorite salad or grilled chicken.


Chef notes:

Try this soup without butter and mascarpone to make it vegan!
