Healing Soup

This is from a book called "Food Doctor" that we found at our local library's annual used book sale. We like to put a dollop of soft fresh cheese or grate some cheddar into the center of our soup bowls befor ladeling in the hot soup. Like most soups the variations are endless.

This soup is quick and easy to make, and it smells as awesome as it tastes! Do not overlook this recipe! I made it once with chickpeas for a heartier soup, and once without. Either way it is delicious! This recipe is definitely a keeper!
