But back to the soup... he used vegetable bouillon instead of stock and then added ginger, cinnamon, and a bit of nutmeg to it also. He also added white beans after the rest of the soup was blended to add more texture and substance. Oh, and he left out the milk. It really didn't need it.
The soup was a hit! Everyone loved it, including Asher. We all had two big bowls each. It is both sweet and savory and really hits the spot this time of year.
