Brigid Soup

Submitted by: CMCRISWELL

Introduction

We use the color red to honor the returning light, and the promise of warmth to come. This unfussy pot of soup needs only a few minutes of chopping to prepare. All the ingredients are either red, orange, or yellow, for the colors of the fire that warms our eyes, hearts and
stomachs.
