SIDE NOTES:

~ Adapted from “Vegetarian Times” magazine

~ This soup is very tasty & easy to prepare. It will feed a family of 4 on its own for lunch, or more if serving as an appetizer or side dish.

~ I bow down to my immersion blender when making creamy soups like this. If you’re unaware of their existence…..It’s a “stick” type blender that purees beautifully, right in the soup pot (without the inconvenience of having to slop soup back and forth in batches to a regular blender). They’re relatively inexpensive (about 30 bucks).

~  This soup pairs up nicely with EASY-CURRIED-LENTILS.
