Submitted by: EHHARP

Introduction

This healthy, creamy, mildly spicy soup can be served as a main course with toasted baguette slices or in small portions as a first course before an elegant dinner.

If you want to make it spicier, add some red chili flakes. For an extra hit of protein, add 50 ml ( 1/4 cup) of red lentils to the chicken stock.
