For a different take on soups, try this one. The recipe is taken from Nourishing Traditions Cookbook, by Sally Fallon. This soup is delicious and all the spices give it complex flavors. If you find you are missing some of the spices, stop by your local Bulk Barn to get a small amount of the ones you are without. It’s definitely the most economical way to buy them! The soup makes a nice lunch with a slice of sour dough bread. Give it a try!
