Mollie Katzen’s Gypsy Soup

My friend “J” introduced me to this soup a few weeks ago.  This past week I finally made it. Actually, I got up early the other wintery morning and made it and it was such an excellent way to begin the day – and fill my home with such warmth and exotic scents. This soup is good for you, but it it also so tasty and it is definitely one of those oh I’m so busy I don’t have the time to make soup, but this soup it’s so easy I can!  Hungry during the week, great pull that container of soup out of the fridge, heat it up, and voila a deliciously filling meal.  Enjoy and pass on – this one is meant to be shared and shared again. xo
