    I made this soup on a very cold, winter’s day. It was quick, easy, and delicious. I’m looking forward to making it again!

    1. Chang, you make my day. I’m really happy that you liked this soup and you really enjoyed it 🙂
      Thanks again.

  5. I am making this soup as we speak (substituted the carrots for zucchini). Can’t wait to dig in and warm up on this cool autumn day!

    1. Great idea to add zucchini instead of carrots, Malik, do let me know how it turns out. Have a great weekend!
